I was wondering if the font used on the covers of the books A Book a Part (http://www.abookapart.com) would be some ultra compressed version of Trade Gothic?
I am wondering because:
1. It looks a lot like Trade Gothic (and probably is)
2. Jason Santa Maria, who is noted as the designer of the books has expressed his love for Trade Gothic on several occasions online.
One is in Fontshop newsletter http://www.fontshop.com/blog/newsletters/june10a/indexEMAIL.html and a small part of one cover is shown, but that super condensed/compressed version shown is not available at Fontshop, as far as I can see.
So, if anyone knows: Where can I buy this font?
