    La Septième Obsession (meaning “The Seventh Obsession”) is a French magazine about cinema, published every two months. It comprises long interviews with directors (such as James Gray, Nicolas Winding Refn, Pedro Almodovar and others) and long themes depending on new releases (space in movies, seven deadly sins, horror cinema, etcetera).

    Since issue #5 (2016), I aim to create an original typographic system for each issue according to the theme. In the September/October 2019 issue, the theme of space was featured with Karelia (Monokrom), Space Mono (Colophon Foundry), Space Grotesk (Florian Karsten), and Berreta Sans (205TF).

    The text typeface is Jan Tschichold’s Sabon. In this interview, it’s paired with Space Grotesk.

      This should qualify as an LTypI. And someone else had the same idea before, see the Out of the Present movie poster.

      Agreed! According to the rules (I didn’t make them), it’s only a true LTypI if Space Mono or Space Grotesk were used for the word (e)space. I see at least one instance, in the third image. Tag added.
