New York Times Blogs

Hey all, I'm fascinated by this face used for the graphical titles of (some of) the NYT blogs. I had a look on What The Font, but no joy. It looks like a super heavy Egyptienne, but I can't see it as part of that family... Ideas? Not a custom job is it?

Jubilat by Joshua Darden comes close but no cigar...

Sorry... Previously discussed at, probably custom. Closest matches found are BT Stymie Extra Bold and LT Memphis Extra Bold (see here, here and here)

It's an old Linotype font called Karnak Black. I don't know if there's a digital version.

It could also be a version of Beton Extra Bold with key manglings.

I don't know how there could not be a digital version.

That's what I would have thought, although a search only reveals an ornamented font by that name (not Black).

Thanks all! That's very useful, and answered my question. Good old NYT.
