    Cover of Better Homes and Gardens magazine from 1967, featuring two typefaces thar were relatively new at the time: While “Christmas Ideas 1967” features Louis Minott’s Davida Bold, a winner of a VGC competition in 1965, the contents are set in Davison Art Nouveau. Drawn by Dave Davison, the face is shown in Photo-Lettering’s 1967 Alphabet Yearbook in three all-caps variants; Davison Art Nouveau with Flourishes, Modified, and Ornate, all of which additionally contain a number of alternates. The variant used here appears to be Davison Art Nouveau Modified.

    1. I love designs where Davida is the tame part!

      Here are one-line samples for the three variants of Davison Art Nouveau, compiled from a page in PLINC’s Alphabet Yearbook 1967. Scan courtesy of Michael Babcock.
