    Elephant in use for Rolling Stone USA, Mexico and Japan, from 2004 and 2008. Rolling Stone is a magazine that gets through a lot of typefaces in a constantly changing format. The Ramones cover shows a — hopefully — one-off use of faux small caps. Elephant Medium and Black weights were used for several issues of the US and Japanese editions. The front cover type on two of the Japanese edition covers looks like it was overprinted — maybe the layout allowed for different languages to be printed?

    Other Alias typefaces used by Rolling Stone include Metsys and August.
