    The Lost Art of Paste-Up

    Arranging and rearranging a magazine’s layout before it goes to press is all done on computers now. But in the years before desktop publishing software, the work of cutting and pasting required a sharp scalpel, a parallel-motion board and plenty of glue.

  6. Hi - anyone know the names of these 2 fonts - seen in the latest `Mr Jones' catalogue by Australian department store - David Jones? Help appreciated
  7. Yesterday
  8. Thank you so much; you're a life-saver. And I can't believe how quickly you found it!
  9. Last week
  10. That is a fair and good thing to do but I suspect not needed legally.
  11. I sent an email to the folks at Letterbox, for whom Heather Walker did the digitization. They said they had concluded that a commercial release would require permission of Wayne’s estate (he died in 2011); they might consider publishing the design if that could be achieved.
  12. It is a typeface that, I think, should have a commercial revival, as it is quite distinctive.
  13. Apparently custom for the City of Melbourne.

    A reversed contrast font by Alfonso García for Los Andes.

  17. Confirming that it is Stettler, with a sample of the glyph set. And I was wrong that it has never received a digital revival—Heather Walker appears to have revived it, but I’m not sure if it is available for purchase.
  18. I think it may be Stettler, by Wayne Stettler, and it has not been digitized. Referenced here by Stephen Coles in a discussion of Clasica Sans.
  19. Because we would have probably found it by now if it were. 😉 It might be worth to ask the designer of Classica Sans where the inspiration came from. I think there is a very good chance it is based on the phototypesetting font used for the books.
  20. Good alternative! Better than the one I found (Quinta Light)... Why don't you think that it has been digitalized?
  21. A glyphic design with some distinctive lowercase letters (|f|g|t|) and very round counters. After extensive research, I haven’t found a match. Whatever it is, it doesn’t seem to have been transitioned to digital. A possible, less quirky, alternative could be the fairly recent (2015) Clasica Sans. download at MyFonts
  22. Ahhhhh! I should have known that! I knew it was one I had seen/used before. Thanks, Les!
  23. I can confirm Blair Medium is correct.
  24. yeah, some of the letters reminds me of either Metro or Peignot.
  25. Update: I have tentatively Identified "REIS" as Blair ITC Medium
  26. I am looking for the fonts in the body of this logo. I have identified the "R" (Persimmon) I am not able to locate the fonts used in "REIS" - There are so many similar, I am having trouble narrowing it down and "REAL ESTATE & CO., INC" - The "N" "S" and "&" are so distinctive, I was sure an automated font matcher would have found it, but no luck Thanks so much Link to use: https://reishomesearch.com/
  27. I have looked at similar fonts URW Classico, Optima etc close but no cigar.
