1930’s Typefaces In Use

1930’s Was an unstable time, and most of the good and very tidy fonts came out at the time. Typefaces used in the ephemera designs and other publications like magazines, newspapers, posters, even products were using some typefaces as means of writing, and documents too. From promoting goods to propaganda posters and materials. As nowadays things aren’t very different in fact things have developed, and the typography industry have too. Although the classic fonts used in 1930’s are still put in use today, mostly by newspapers and many other articles. Today’s typeface usage is depending on the context of the project or material.

I have decided to put together a list of typefaces used and made around 1930’s.
