Reverse type ID: Clarendon spotting
0

Looking at a brief sample of Clarendon LT Std Roman earlier (just the &!) I was pleased to be able to scratch that itch in my mind which said “I've seen that in something particular…”: [[http://www.matadorrecords.com/images/fullsize/ole-311.jpg|Belle & Sebastian: The Boy with the Arab Strap]] (possible minor differences in weight aside — it's still a Clarendon and not Bold, Black, Heavy or Light)

There's another itch though: I have a feeling it's used in some (UK, I think) product or brand which I can't place. Ring any bells?

Will think about that Clarendon LT Std Roman itch - on a semi-connected note, check out the branding of [[http://www.bolton.gov.uk|Bolton Council]], by Hemisphere DMC, bringing Clarendon (with a slight modification to the l/c t) back to the public sector!

I've got it!

It's [[http://www.abel-cole.co.uk|Abel & Cole]] (the logo's one of the heavier weights). The itch said it was something, possibly food-y, with middle-class associations. It deserves a pat on the back.

Hurrah!

Do feel free to chime in now with other spottings as you like :)

I'm not sure but I think the [[http://www.gotfootagehd.com/thumb/HD-043/HD043-056.thumb.jpg|Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas]] might use it.

Abel & Cole have a new logo already! Are they spying here I wonder ... ?
