    Cover and interior spreads from the 2020 Holiday Issue of Bon Appétit magazine.

    The cover uses the third iteration of its logo in a decade. Originally designed by Matthew Lenning and Matthew Carter in 2007, the logo was re-drawn by Tal Leming in 2011. The current version was drawn by Commercial Type in 2018.

    The typography uses Bon Appétit’s stalwart typeface Futura for all copy.

    The holiday special guest typefaces are Warren Chappell’s Lydian, Margot by Nick Sherman, and Adamastor by Mário Feliciano. Margo is also used in the website version of this Bon Appétit issue, alongside Futura.

    Creative direction by Michele Outland; art & design by Chris Cristiano and Bryan Fountain.

      Gifts is set in an unreleased typeface by Mario Feliciano

    2. Thank you for chiming in, Chris!

      Mário Feliciano kindly provided a sample. The typeface is named Adamastro. It comes in a single Black weight in 5 widths. Some glyphs with round shapes like ‘GOQ’ maintain the same width across the styles. For the time being, it remains unreleased.

    3. That explains why I couldn’t find it! Thanks, Chris!

    4. Thanks Lauren for posting this, and Chris and Florian for the extra info on Mario’s typeface. I’ve added some additional images of the print edition to the entry for good measure.
