Could someone please ID the font(s) used on this Paula Scher Classic poster.
It's not it, but you could get a very similar effect using HTF Knockout, various weights.
I've just been reading her book. She used old wood types (or images of old wood types from old specimen books). I don't think the specific fonts she used are available in digital form, but there are similar ones, as Patricia has noted.
Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if she created this custom for the Public Theater. They have beautiful posters, great typography.
