1 Comment on “The Sunday Times posters”
Very nice. Worth noting, incidentally, that the Sunday Times was at this time a totally separate newspaper to the Times (they merged in 1966, but still remain operationally independent – this is quite common in the UK for Sunday newspapers).
In fact, at this time the Sunday Times actually didn’t generally use Times New Roman - they used Intertype Royal (or at least they did by 1970, according to a paper on the topic by Allen Hutt). This was similar to Linotype’s “Legibility Group” Ionic faces of the 20s and 30s.
This picture of a 1962 edition shows they were using rather an odd mixture of fonts and capitalisations – and underlining too in some headings.
