answered What font does the Hal Leonard Corporation use for John Williams Musical Scores?

Recommended Posts

Good Morning all, I would like to identify the font that the Hal Leonard Corporation use for John Williams Musical Scores. I am particularly interested in the font that is used for the (1) titles, subtitles, (2) composer name, (3) measure box marking, and (4) song title (above the tempo marking). 

I cannot provide links, because that would be copyright infringement. 

Thank you for your help!

Looks like Palatino for 1 and 2. Not sure about 3 and 4.

The others texts are too small to identify the font properly. But I wouldn’t be surprised if its something basic such as Times New Roman.

That is very possible. Many music publishers nowadays tend to go with defaults like that. Other common default text fonts are Plantin, Helvetica, and Century Schoolbook.

What about the font used in the cover pages for the same John Williams Signature Editions?
Thought it was Century Gothic but the "c"'s don't seem to match up...

It looks like some (horizontally stretched?) version of Futura.

Next time, please open a new thread.
