    Πολιτιστικη (“Politistiki”), or Πολιτιστικη Μηνιαια Επιθεωρηση Τεχνης (“Cultural Monthly Art Review”) was a magazine about cultural affairs and Greek literature. Edited by Αντώνης Στεμνής (Antonis Stemnis, 1952–2006), it was printed and circulated between 1984 and 1987.

    The magazine logo appears to use an adaptation for the Greek alphabet of the Zipper typeface as also seen in the Arnokouros shop sign. The Σ (sigma) is exactly the same as in the sign as well as the O and K. The Λ (lamda) has less wide proportions than one would expect for a Zipper adaptation.

    The subtitle is shown in caps from what looks like a Greek version of Helvetica. Most of the other text on the covers is set in a bold weight of ITC Souvenir.
