Clockers Book Cover ID

EAE's picture


I am trying to ID the typeface used for the cover of Richard Price's book CLOCKERS. (The version with red type running vertically on a black background). Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance

All text looks like Bindlestiff NF by Nick Curtis (Nick's Fonts, 2011) a revival of Binder Style designed by Joseph Binder and released by D. Stempel AG in 1959. The |C| looks a bit modified.

I found it using Find my Font -

That one is really close. It looks like the outer curves have a bigger radius on the original but seems to definitely come from the Binder-Style family.

Another similar alternative would be Raleigh Gothic. For something more modern you might want to check out H&FJ's Tungsten.

OPTI fonts also had a BinderStyle that would work. Tungsten is not compressed enough to be close.
