      What kind of Futura is that? The w and the v seem to be broader than Futura Condensed Bold, and the original futura has the tapered lower sides..

      This is simply Futura Bold, one of the many foundry versions available: either Linotype, URW, or Neufville.

      I was just wondering if i could print one of these prints as a poster?

      Hi Emma, it depends on the purpose, I guess. Anyway, you’d need to direct that question to Vampire Weekend.
