      I’m sorry, but there is no Knockout in these Posters. The first is Gotham but the second is neither Knockout nor Gotham. Unfortunately I don’t know the actual typeface.

      You’re right, Philipp. The “Progress” type (or lettering) is so close to Knockout No.27 I just assumed it was. Perhaps based on the font, but custom.

      I would actually say the “Progresss” poster uses a Knockout typeface, but not No. 27 but No. 48.
