Font ID for Cowboy Bebop album cover

TypoTyp3's picture

Having trouble identifying this font via What The Font, etc. I thought it may have been Akzidenz-Grotesk, but not positive. The W (where it thins out near the baseline) seems to be unique-- any guesses?

Having trouble with uploads...

Once you’ve desquooshed the letters, you will be able to see that this is Helvetica Condensed Bold, also sold as Europa Grotesk. The ink traps on the ‘W’ are indeed a dead giveaway that it’s a) Helvetica and b) not Neue Helvetica.

System crashed, lost all of my fonts. Need help identifying this one please.

The typeface you are looking for is Harrington, appearing slanted in your sample.

I would, by the way, suggest to post a new topic for each font ID.
