Among digital fonts, ParaType’s Caslon comes close for the wide roman lowercase letters. This version “was designed at Polygraphmash type design bureau in 1992 by Isay Slutsker. Similar to Caslon designed by American Type Founders, 1902.”
Vogue?! That’s so cool.
The letterforms of this sample remind me of Gotham Condensed.
It’s a fascinating series, isn’t it? Vogue deserves more exploration. Its structure doesn’t follow a masterplan, to say the least. From Mac McGrew: “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.” Here’s a snippet featuring the Extra Bold Condensed, from a Intertype specimen kindly shared by Urban Cottage Industries.
Very nice info, Florian!
