Hi guys -

Anyone available to identify either of these fonts? I will be forever in your debt if so.

THANKS!

The geometric sans ("Contraband") is Avant Garde Gothic by Herb Lubalin. The "A" and lower case "e" are alternate characters.

The other album cover is a cut of [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/hobo/alternate_cuts.html|Hobo]].

thank you so much pros!!

The second one is an old film font called Hercules, not Hobo. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a digital version.

Yes, there IS a digitized version of Hercules, [[http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/samples/h/herkules.htm|Herkules, by Dieter Steffmann]]. And free, too.

He called it Herkules, because he already had a different font called Hercules.
