Hi Juuni,

maybe Vonness?

I think it isn’t Vonness, have a look at the E.

Looks like Bauer’s Venus, which was a source of inspiration for Vonness, but I can’t find a bold version (besides the bold extended). See the medium at

URW has a bold version, although not bold enough, and the P and R no longer look right.

I´ve looked through several fonts, but find this one very tricky. It is possible to flip through the magazine (www.lemagazinedouble.com), and I found a thinner version..or at least that was wat I first thought..but the R is different. So I haven´t figured it out yet. Thanks for all the help, it is much appreciated:)

Maybe a custom typeface based on Venus or Vonness…

Did you try to contact them?

I think it is Dada Grotesk from Optimo.
