Fictional magazine covers from Blade Runner... as shown in the blade runner bonus feature "Signs of the Times: Graphic Design". The covers were created by production illustrator Tom Southwell in 1980-1981 and appeared in the background on a magazine stand in the city streets.

Some help getting an ID on the sans serif on this Sports Illustrated cover.

Serif font with large X value

Hi, I'm looking for a serif or slab font with a large x value to use on a magazine cover. The text is just 2 letter: RH, and I would like it to form a rectangle standing on its smallest side. The magazine is a business publication, so there is a concern on it looking serious. Anyone have any suggestions?

My typeface knowledge is pretty thin, so please feel free to quote obvious choices. So far I've come up with things like Palatino, Weiss and Minion. But I' not sure I'm on the right track.


I know Foundry has originals, new alphabet, but what is the name of this "regular" version.
