Potatochimp's picture

Is there a name for this style of typeface? I see it a lot lately in magazines like idn. I'm wondering where I can get it aside from some of the shareware ones I see that have a few problems.

Wouldn't that be considered early russian constructivist style type?

Looks very similar to a P22 typeface. P22 Constructivist Block

Cooper Black
Gator (Canada Type)
Gill Sans Ultra Black
Goudy Heavyface
Goudy Stout
Gothic 821 aka Block Berthold Condensed
