charlie hebdo magazine-min

Charlie Hebdo (Charlie Weekly in English) is a French satirical weekly magazine founded in 1970 featuring cartoons, reports, polemics, and jokes.

The logo of the magazine uses a font called Block BQ Condensed. Designed by Hermann Hoffman and initially released by Berthold in 1908, Block is a sans serif that is characterized by its distinctive bold characters and very short descenders. Block was a staple for job printing in Germany for decades. In the late 1970s, more weights, including italics, were added to offer more flexibility of the typeface.
