    1. “SPORTS” is set in Victoria Titling, according to this PDF:…

      It seems Victoria Titling was originally V&A Titling (aka Victoria & Albert Titling), which was designed by Matthew Carter for V&A in 1979.

    2. I asked Matthew Carter about Victoria Titling and V&A Titling.

      He wrote:

      I drew a titling face for a series of gallery guides designed by Derek Birdsall for the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1979.

      I afterwards digitized the drawings and the resulting font was used by Roger Black for section headings in the Los Angeles Times.

      I also heard from him that Victoria Titling is not available for licensing.

    3. Thank you very much for sharing this info here!
