Newspaper Head Scripts

Hi,
I guess both heads are from the late 40ties.
Do you know the used scripts or near ones?

Bottom one is hand lettered -- the differences are noticeable between the two o's, e's, h's and r's.

Top one looks Lucian Bernhard-ish.

yes, the veer scriptlist is inspiring

I've thought it's near charme or slogan

I like the more contemporary Xavier Dupré's Tartine Script too

But hasn't someone seen an exactly fitting Main-"n" somewhere?

Another place to look for similar designs is Nick Curtis' delightful collection of obscure vintage faces.

For '40s scripts you might also like Loupot, Flamme, La Salle, and Kaufmann.

I'd also suggest looking through the Casual Flowing Scripts of Part 7 of the Script Font ID Guide. 'Slogan' (or its sibling 'Charme') are sort of similar to the top script and 'Signal' (pg 3) is similar to the bottom one.

Loupot is great. Reminds me of the the Olympic 2012 font. (Who did that one btw?)

Really obscure!

Identifont says

»Developed from the logo for St. Raphael mineral water, created by French designer Charles Loupot in 1948. Designers: Laurie Rosenwald and Cyrus Highsmith«

EDIT: Oh, do you mean the London 2012-font?
