    Cover and spread from Practical Householder magazine, “from the days when your father made half of the furniture”, via Steve Collins.

    The logo is in Futura Display, paired with more caps from the bold condensed members of Folio (on an angle) and Univers. “Other features” is in Grotesque No. 9 Italic. The spread shown below features Microgramma in two weights, set on a curve. “For the Space Age Boys” is stretched Gemini Computer. The text face appears to be Monotype Grotesque, with a dash of Gill Sans.

    Bunk beds! Moon pictures! And storage made by parents in the days before Ikea. Note that the woman tucking them in and rolling the carpet is different to the dolly bird with Dad in the first picture.
