Today I decided to make a rendition of a Vogue issued in June as to get a feel for the designing of a magazine [ thats me in the tucks, kinda of a bad resolution, you get the idea ]


The serif typeface used in the sub-headings is ITC American Typewriter,

Designer: Joel Kaden / Tony Stan, 1974

ITC American Typewriter™ Light belongs to the ITC American Typewriter™ Font Family which is part of the ITC Collection.

ITC American Typewriter font was designed by Joel Kaden and Tony Stan. It is an ode to the invention that shaped reading habits and the idea of legibility, the typewriter. A compromise between the rigidity of its ancestor and the expectations of the digital age, ITC American Typewriter font retains the typical typewriter alphabet forms, lending the font a hint of nostalgia

I think the VOGUE logotype uses a typeface known as Didot ( by Adrian Frutiger of Linotype ) as the foot on the vogue ‘G’ is very distinct, however the x-height seems slightly more exagerated in a quick glance of visual comparison
