Space Age is an extrabold counterless geometric sans designed by Murray Fuchs and issued by Photo-Lettering sometime after 1965. It came in three styles. In 1969, Milton Glaser chose Space Age A – with contour – for a Greatest Hits compilation of works by Rachmaninoff, released by Columbia Masterworks. He used it with slightly squooshed and partly overlapping letterforms and specified a different color for the contour.
