The script typeface is Wave, the last published typeface by Robert Hunter Middleton (1898–1985), designed in 1962 for Ludlow. The not quite joining brush script was revived by Phil Rutter and published by Canada Type in c. 2004 as Coffee Script. In 2010, latter was revised and redigitized by Patrick Griffin and is now named Middleton Brush, “to better reflect the origins of the design, which was Middleton’s response to Robert Smith’s popular Brush Script.” [Canada Type]

Wait is that Tempo or Futura?
The two-storey ‘a’ in the small type in image 1 or in the condensed style in image 3 suggest it is Tempo. In image 2, ‘featuring’ is definitely Tempo Heavy. In some styles and at some sizes, Tempo is hard to tell from Futura, especially since it comes with many mimicry alternates with which it can masquerade as Futura (or Kabel). See the specimen links on the typeface page. Also note that there is a later series, Tempo Alternate, introduced about 1960 [McGrew], which is even closer to Futura. As the other fonts in use here are Ludlow typefaces, I think it is safe to say that it is all Tempo and Tempo Alternate.
