    Amazing Animals is a series of VHS video tapes produced by DK Vision together with Partridge Films, and published around 1997. Each cover shows Henry the Lizard alongside photographs of some of the featured animals. The typography uses various styles of ITC Garamond. The roman caps used for the “Amazing Animals” logo are from an unidentified typeface [it’s New York, see comments].

    1. I believe the unidentified “AMAZING ANIMALS” roman capitals are Apple’s New York in its first TrueType incarnation as a scalable font (with System 7, around 1990). This was a different typeface than the bitmapped New York (1983) or the modern New York (2019), also from Apple.

    2. No doubt about that! Outstanding, Jay – thank you. Added.

      Our sample shows the bitmapped version, but for those curious to see the vector version, head over to Identifont.
