1950

I came across this a few years ago in a museum exhibiting a few pages from a 1950s edition of Picasso's bullfight drawings. Being no fan of either Picasso or bullfighting, the thing I found most interesting about this was the titling face used on the front page, particularly its U, which has its »straight« top part and its curved bottom clearly separated, and this separation empasised by serif-like hook-ish embellishments on both sides.

The guards interfered my trying to take a picture of it, but I found this blurry one online, from someone selling their edition for €6000,-.

Thank you

Hi there!

Does anyone know what typeface Oldsmobile used for this advert? (See attached image)

Specifically the one used for the "88" and "ROCKET HYDRA-MATIC!"

I have searched everywhere I could think of...

Regards,

Reinhardt

Is anyone familiar with the type used here? This is a Royal Canadian Legion flag, circa 1950's.

Your help is appreciated!
