Hi, Just wondering what font is this.
I'm think is kind of Bodoni, but couldn't find it exactly.

Wow. I never would have thought of using that typeface for that type of magazine. Definitely not Bodoni.

That’s Carousel, squooshed a bit.

I promised I’d tell you (eh, yesterday in some other thread that I can’t find any more).

The way they combine Carousel with Avant Garde (and Lubalin Graph on the international edition) gives the covers a nice late-'60s, early-'70s feel.

Wow. Thanks for your help Jan.
Yesterday I posted my comment the first place I could ( I am a beginner in this site).

Thanks guys.
And I agree, the way they combined the fonts is great.

Yves. Did you delete that thread? It’s gone. Topic was brands and corporate fonts.

Naw, just the comment, but because it was an old thread it jumped back in time to its last comment. You'll have to trawl back a good number of pages before you'll find it.
