The Children’s Crusade is Anzeigen-Grotesk (aka Neue Aurora IX).
Right you are. Thanks, Jay!
Could you explain what you mean when you say that the second S is upside down? When you vertically flip an S, it looks like a 2 in that the direction of each opening should change: the top should open to the left (as the bottom formerly did) and the bottom should open to the right (as the top formerly did). If, instead of inverting the letter, you simply rotate the “S” 180 degrees, it should basically stay the same, which it does. What am I missing here? Thanks!
In most typefaces, the S is not rotational symmetrical: the upper half is often shorter and also narrower, so that it looks balanced.
