answered Vinyl Cover design fonts (African rub-a-dub)

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have here a LP sleeve that I would like to reproduce, it has been made in the 90's and I couldn't find exaclty the same ones especially "specialist's" for which I found several digital fonts very close. "Studio One" is from 70s/80s. I am sure the "SOLP" font is well known but can't find the name.  For the map font , I just didn't found anything similar even asking on several forums ! Notice the weird "k".

Any help appreciated like name or links to free/buy options.

Thanks !

The title font looks almost like Premier but the S and A are different.

I think it is Premier (rather a pre-digital version/knock-off) using alternates. See also Copasetic.

Helvetica.

The city names on the map look like a very poor reproduction of ITC Souvenir except the "k" is totally different.

For studio one you might want to try Clarendon Bold Condensed.

Perfect! Many thanks, I think I have enough infos to go on.

The unusual "k" seems to come up only in italic versions of Souvenir.
