Hi All

Everyone helped me out so quickly when I needed a typeface identified before so thought I'd try again!

I need to know what typeface is used on this book.

My client is a literaray-agent and they want me to mock-up a special one-off version of this book cover as a leaving present for someone! So, I need to retitle it and obviously want to use the original font if possible.

Any help is much appreciated as always,

looks like Futura to me.

"INCLUDES" and "MIND-PROGRAMMING" (!) look like Futura condensed, and "FREE" and "CD" are Helvetica Bold Condensed.

... are actually Adobe Sans, which means the intended font wasn't embedded properly. The Helvetica Bold Condensed suggests that the other lines were supposed to be the same face in a lighter weight.

My collection of Adobe Sans grows every day.

You're right, Erik. It's strange that the cover designer would embed all the fonts except that one.

I suppose the original poster should set the text in a lighter weight of Helvetica condensed but not embed it to replicate the cover exactly.

Thanks very much all of you - awesome stuff.

Didn't imagine I'd have to avoid embedding certain fonts to achieve the same look - what a weird world...cover designers eh? ;)

Thanks again.
