11ème Festival Estival de Paris

    Program booklet for the 11th Festival Estival de Paris, which found place in the summer of 1976. On the cover we see a phototype version of Helvetica breitfett, with customisations (see e.g. the r which might have been derived from an n). Among digital versions, Nimbus Sans Black Extended comes close.

    The inside of the program is set in various weights of Helvetica. The back cover uses ITC Souvenir for the titles and Times for the main text.

    The signature on the cover tells us the design is by painter and graphic designer Raymond Pagès (1923–2014). He designed for several editions of this festival, see e.g. 1974 or 1983. Pagès also designed multiple posters commissioned by Air France — who participated in the festival — in the 1970s.

      Hello,

      Very interesting, but Antique Olive Nord is missing.

      Yes, of course: “Air France” is in Antique Olive Nord. I guess the font ID wasn’t included before because it’s a logo, not a direct use. Since it appears quite prominently here, I now have added it. Merci, Pierre!
