EIF 1973

Posted by Scott

Couple nice programs from the Edinburgh International Festival 1973.  Some good Avant Garde action going on in the top one.

Hey all,
I was wondering if there is another font that is very similar to the ITC Avant Garde…I’m pretty sure there is yet I cannot remember it’s name…any help would be great

Century Gothic is pretty close, and while not all that similar, Futura and Univers make for somewhat more refined alternatives.

I was able to get Avant Garde for free a couple yrs ago, from a Deftones fan site, as its the font they used for much of White Pony, along with Ribbon for their traditional logo. I can’t find it anymore, I’ll have to check back at home if it’s still there…

I’ve downloaded multiple versions of Avant Garde, and none seem to have the last letters. It’s a real piss off. I even look in the character pallet and they only have some obscure linked letters…

Cheers to you Scott – thank you…with Illustrator and a little tweaking you could surely make the slants on existing fonts in the ITC Avant Garde too

that’s your best bet. I’ve never owned the Alts set, I just do type > convert to shape in PS and tweak from there. it gives you a lot more control and usually ends up looking better…. and saves you $120.
