    “This LIFE special edition chronicles the first moon landing, brought about by the courage of the Apollo 11 astronauts and the thousands of people who supported their mission. On the cover is a picture of Buzz Aldrin, taken by fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong.” — American Society of Magazine Editors’s Top 40 Magazine Covers of the last 40 Years

    I first assumed the type was Trade or Alternate Gothic, but it appears to be Folio Condensed, a Helvetica alternative commonly used in the 1950–70s but often neglected today.
