US, The paperback magazine covers

I should note that even though I’ve ID’d the geometric slab as Karnak, I haven’t matched it exactly with an original sample yet (my Ludlow book is not at my side at the moment). Similarly, it’s possible that the heavier style seems to be a closer match to Beton than Karnak. They very well may be from separate families.
The extra bold K especially caught my eye. Frank-on-the-Quixo swiftly provided this image, confirming the alternate Beton Extra Bold K and R:
I think you’re right about separate families. The light “G” is more like Memphis than Beton or Karnak.
