    This compilation of Greek folk music was published by Diplomat Records. It features “Zorba’s Dance” from the motion picture Zorba the Greek (1964), starring Anthony Quinn.

    The big type is Paul Renner’s Futura Display (1932), which was named Futura Schlagzeile (“Headline”) in Germany. In the US, it also circulated as Airport Tourist. This copy made by Baltimore was cast from electrotyped mats derived from the German foundry type. [McGrew] The script typeface is Filmotype Zephyr, originally made in 1952 and digitized in 2012 by Alejandro Paul together with the related Yukon (1958).

    The small sans serif appears to be News Gothic Extended. This wide variant was made in two weights by Intertype in 1961 and seems to be unavailable in digital form. Linotype’s Trade Gothic Extended (1959) is largely identical. In ATF’s matrix of gothics, the light wide position was covered by Monotone Gothic, which is less wide than Intertype’s addition.

    The text on the record label is set in Vogue [see comments].

      That’s Vogue, not Bernhard Gothic.

      Of course! Thanks for the correction, Mark.
