I can't believe no one asked that before.
Is it so obvious ? Anyway... I just can't identify that typeface.
Someone did ask this before. The concensus was that these were hand-drawn by a talented lettering artist. Similar British Humanist faces are Gill Sans or Johnston.
I just found a link to this post via google, I was coming back to update my post but you were way too fast !
did you use the search field to find that post ? It gives me no answers.
Gill and Johnston are similar, but are not the good one.
That's why I was posting here, hoping for a perfect match.
You will find no matching font, but P22 Underground comes closest.
The search field is sort of broken, and always has been. If you want to do a search on a specific site, just type "site:somesite.com your search terms" in Google. I searched for "site:typophile.com carry on" to find the older post.
Damn nice message (and the typeface looks much better than Gill). I'll make a desktop picture of this ;-)
P22 Underground is near, but the R (used 2 times here !) is really too straight...
let's digitalize folks !
You could cobble together a reasonable facsimile using Gotham for most of the characters and Myriad/Frutiger for the Rs.
This is the closet i got... Avenir next, Gotham M, Bliss R.
This typeface reminds me a lot of Caslon's egyptian, by the way.
You can buy reproductions for just a couple quid or so at http://www.barterbooks.co.uk/ if you dare use their website! I did anyway, much cheaper than the other places that sell it, not silkscreened but who cares you just put it in a cheapy frame! Or just recreate yourselves ofcourse, I'm lazy.
> not silkscreened but who cares
I do care a lot !
Funny takeoffs here and here.
use this website, very usefull...
