"Speedy" italics on a transitional or modern

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project which needs italics with a little more oomph to them, and I'm looking for something in the transitional or modern forms. My point of departure in this search is the new Didot Christian Schwartz and Paul Barnes completed for Vanity Fair. According to their own blog on the commission, the drawings they built their didone from revive a specific letterer's cuts: Molé Le Jeune.

Vogue Paris 1980's - very niche but urgent question!

hi !

I can't find out what font was used around the 1980's in Vogue Paris (when the magazine was under Colombe Pringle direction) anywhere and I've scoured the internet!

Specifically, I want to ID the typeface used on 1989 covers - does anyone know what this is??

I've uploaded a couple of images of what I'm referring to.

If I am lucky enough that someone knows - please could you also inform me where I might download/buy it??


Pairing Type for a Elegant "Vogue" letterhead suite

Hello, I'm a beginning design student struggling to pair types in a letterhead suite. I want it to look very classic, elegant and "Vogue." My display font is nouvelle vague and I need a very clean fashion- esc font to pair with it. Any suggestions?


Vogue cover text font

Hello everyone, have used this resource before, and now I'm hoping someone can help me with this! What is the font for the text (not the word "Vogue") on the Vogue covers below? Every time I think I've identified it, I notice the "a" looks different. (Even if it's custom for Vogue, the "closest match" would be great.) Thanks so much!
