Hi MainMan

I haven't had a real close look at it, just a thought I had while watching it reminded me of something that might be designed by Barnbrook, but that might just be because of the mix of white and orange that he has used several times. It will be a cpl of days before I can have a look and see if I can make sense of it. If you have an idea about what it could be post it here.

A fascinating read MossGarden, I love the origins of typefaces/fonts from Record sleeves etc.

Does anyone happen to know what typeface might have been used for the Best of David Bowie 1969/1974 (et al) compilations??

And while we're at it, does anyone have any ideas as to the Ryko Singles and Video Collection font?

I'm still finding my footing here, but if someone can explain how to post images on this forum (or if I CAN) I'd post a piece of art I did with the "Next Day" fonts, 'cause you sound like the only people who'd care.



“Stum!”

one of the fonts for 'hours...' is just a regular medieval one. And for the hours booklet, I am 80% sure that the lyrics were handwritten.

I have updated the info on Let's Dance.
I found a typeface that looks a lot like the way Bowie is written on the cover, it has to be twerked like the original was.  
The font is Grand Canyon RR Bold from 1998 by Steve Jackaman, it looks a lot like the Everlast logo from 1910, a woodtype, that I think the Bowie cover is based on.

See the first post in this thread for all the typeface info

I have added a link for a typeface with Bowies own handwriting in the first post in this thread.
It is made by sampling his handwriting and can be used like they did on the record labels for Clarksville Grove Demos and Spying Through A Keyhole.
It can be downloaded from this page, as long as they keep it up https://befonts.com/bowies-font.html

Enjoy

[/quote] Nice find.Steveboy [/quote]

You are very welcome, it has disappeared from most places, I think the Bowie people had it removed within a day or two of th original upload, so I was surprised that I could find it  :D

Apparently, the ones that made it had messed up a bit so a couple of the letters are not Bowie but someone else. Still nice though.
