Obama's People: New York Times Magazine

I just got this week's New York Times Magazine, and the cover caught my eye. I couldn't find an image of the cover online, but the front page of their web gallery of same name is very similar to the magazine cover, and can be seen here:


I can't figure out the face. The G and R made me think it was a highly condensed Helvetica, but I mocked it up and it isn't quite right.


Block Gothic is also quite close. That 'M' is interesting. Almost hand cut.

Unless I'm mistaken, it's http://Knockout Flyweight from HF&J, and the apostrophe is borrowed from another font.

Knockout? Nope.
