(x) Geometric text sans w/ low x-height and vertical tail on Q - Vogue {Mark Foster}

Jonathan Bennett's picture

Hello all.
I'm wondering exactly what typeface this is. It has a lot in common with Futura, but it's an odd variation on the style. Note, the vertical cross of the Q. (Much like whatever the New Yorker uses in their "listings" section.

Thanks in advance for any help.

p.s. Thanks for the title edit moderators. I'll work on that.

I would say Vogue Medium or Bold. H&FJ's Verlag will get you close.

Can't remember where I found this image of Vogue (Light), perhaps the old H&FJ web site:

Thank you Mark. That was quick.
Too bad it is called Vogue. Any google searches will probably only yield a million items related to the famous magazine's typography.

Oh well. This certainly helps.

Best.

You can search the Global Type database.

'superficially resebles Futura', understatement, lol. It even has the odd characters in Special No. 8, like that 'r'.

Yeah, and ‘Special No. 3’ is the Kabel enhancement. Someone should do an OpenType version with stylistic subsets; the Early-20th-Century-German-Geometric-Sans-All-In-One-Font … ;°)

Yes, Stephen, thanks. I found one of those discussions while hunting around. So, another related question, how about that typeface that The New Yorker uses for their listings? Is that commercially available? Is it Vogue? It has the telltale Q.

Care to post a visual sample so we can see what you're talking about?

Also, check out Neutraface and Neutraface 2. They both have that Q.
