Vogue

Vogue is a Stephenson Blake sans caps typeface made in 1929. There is a slightly differenbt typeface called Intertype Vogue, created in 1930, about which Mac McGrew writes: Vogue is an American sans-serif type, cut by Intertype in light and bold weights early in 1930. It had been created for Conde Nast of Vogue magazine. but was released also to the general printing trade. It is generally quite similar to Futura (q.v.), but caps are the full height of ascenders, and descenders are a bit longer; most noticeable in the original version are the very long crossbar of G and the vertical tail of Q. The bold weight is about equivalent to Futura Medium. Extra bold, oblique, and condensed versions were added over the next several years, and it became especially popular for newspaper work. Vogue Extra Condensed was designed by Edwin Shaar in 1971 for the New York Times classified display, and cut in 48-point only. Several sets of alternate characters in some versions enabled users of this series to simulate the general appearance of Futura, Kabel, or Tempo, while r the light and bold weights also offered unusual squared versions of kmnru, derived from early tentative designs for Futura. Through an unusual twist of names, Vogue Medium Condensed is bolder than Vogue Bold Condensed. Vogue Bold Extra Condensed (not to be confused with Vogue Extra Bold Condensed), is made only in a few large sizes and departs somewhat in design. Lining Vogue and Lining Vogue Bold are made in several sizes of caps and figures to cast on a 6- or 12-point body in the manner of Copperplate Gothic; also one small size of 18-point.
