Just today I was browsing through an old book of cocktail manual, will have been printed around the seventies and I was very intrigued photos: wonderful. Another aspect that has captured, what I want to talk about today, are the fonts used. If it was a recent book (even up to 20 years ago) in all probability would have been used Times o l’Arial, in this case in particular have been used instead of three characters singular: one for the title, one for the ingredients and another for the body.
I was (and) completely fascinated by the font used for the body text, and also that the title does not leave me indifferent. I decided to put the book under the scanner and take a look on WhatTheFont. The font used for the titles is “ITC Stone Informal LT Bold Regular” (29$), that used for the body of the text is “ITC Century LT Light Italic” (26$), that for the ingredients is “CenturyStd-LightCondensed Regular” (29$). It seems to me just a little’ strange that for all the sets of the three characters used it and I have to spend no 84$ (now little more than 65euro).
