Magazine typography - Critique


I'm studying graphic design in Norway (seccond year), currently I'm designing a magazine about Café Racers, both the history and present. I'm going for a stripped down, fast look.

I've attached a few sample pages with typography and I would very much like to get some feedback on the typography. Does the font's fit the type of magazine, is size, spacing, kerning good? etc…

Opinions on layout is also welcomed :)

Identifying Bicycle Decal Fonts

I know this is a long shot but I'm trying to identify the fonts used in these Old bicycle decals so I can re-create them. The bike dates from 1988-1989

The fonts I'm trying to identify are those used in the words RANDONNEE, BRITISH and EAGLE

I have also attached pictures of a different bike using the same fonts with decals that are more complete

Grateful for any help

I’m designing a book (cover and inside) for a friend. It is WW2 shipwreck story, and the author really wants to emphasise authenticity. I thought using a font that was usual for newspapers in that era (at least for the cover, but maybe through the book as well) could be a way to convey this authenticity.

I have some scans of newspapers clippings which I put through WhatTheFont. (I’m a novice graphic designer, so my type history probably isn’t as good as it should be!). I don’t know how accurate WhatTheFont is, and maybe they don’t even exist in digital versions. Also, communication is the main goal here, so if I can find a good font that is close enough for the target audience to recognise it I would be happy with that as well.
