Thoughts on lettering typography

Space-age typography – computer fonts

The typography shown here is from a book called Eagle on the Moon: the incredible space journey of Apollo 11. Published by Paul Hamlyn Pty Ltd Special Projects and the Sydney Morning Herald in 1969, it celebrates the first man on the moon. (It cost me $2 from a second-hand store.) The typography is similar to that of  Data 70 designed by Bob Newman of Letraset fame. There is a good article here about that font. This one is variously called Computer!
