I have ATYCLB - Eurostile Extended Roman
and HTDAAB - Clarendon (not exactly the same btw, the one from HTDAAB is Clarendon BT Roman, wich you'd have to purchase to get)

I'd love if somebody could hook me up with the AB font!

odd, I can't YSI fonts.. you'lll have to post your email for this I think!

Joshua Tree: Legacy Serif Ultra
Rattle & Hum: Univers Black Italic
Achtung Baby: ?
ATYCLB: Eurostile Extended
HTDAAB: Clarendon

I'm in the procces of creating a u2 website with everything you'll ever need if you're making bootleg covers, wallpapers, website and so on.
This is what it looks like so far, but I'm thinking about changing the layout a bit.


I have a list from it on my other computer with many U2 or U2 related fonts, I'll post that once I have access to it.
Let's start with this, though

* Boy - Berling Roman
* October - Bernhard BoldCondensed
* War - Block Gothic
* Under A Blood Red Sky - Nimbus Sans
* The Unforgettable Fire - Bolide
* Joshua Tree - Legacy Serif Ultra
* Rattle And Hum - Compacta Bold BT
* Achtung Baby - Helvetica Cyr Upright
` One video - Migraine Serif`
* Zooropa - Traffic Type Sweden D
* Pop - Helvetivca 45 Light
* Best Of - Swiss 721
* All That You Can't Leave Behind - Eurostile Extended
` Elevation Tour Live From Boston cover - 04b_08 04b_19 and 04b_31`
* How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb - Clarendon
` Vertigo Tour// 2005/2006 - Housebroken Clean`
* U2byU2 - Eurostile Bold Extended #2
* U2:18 - Eurostile Bold Extended #2
` The Saints Are Coming (singel): Aachen Bold Plain`

I don't now where you can get all of these or similar for free though.
There will probably be some links on the website when I'm done making the research on where to find them.

Enjoy!

Could someone please email the Joshua Tree font listed above?

Thanks ;-)

I've actually made a change recently.
I have this picture by Kevin Westenberg instead of the ATCYLB shadows now, but in red.
Other than that it's the same.

You've got a link for "U2 Logos" on there. Do you mean the symbols from all the albums? I've been searching forever for a few & hope to make a couple of tshirts.......

Yeah, that's more or less what it is.
This is an example:


(Thanks to whoever posted it for the rest of us!)

Wow, thanks Mr_LeMon!
I was going to ask for your permission to borrow the scans you have on your Limelight Goodies section?
I've scanned some of my own stuff. (including the Q magazine scans you already have)
I'll keep the "L" logo too.

I can post a list of fonts that I have so far later, I'm on my laptop at the moment.
Anyways, u2BIGideas isn't really done yet, I still have got some work to do before I can launch it.
Hope that's ok?

by the way; what's the best way of sharing big pictures and not store them on your website server?
I saw something called JAlbum, is that good?
Preferably something that doesn't resize it too.

The_Edge89----is your site up at all, or is it too far under the dust of construction?

Wow, this is great guys! I've been looking for stuff like this for donkeys years. Look forward to the site The_Edge89!

edit - I have a question. Where exactly is the 'Helvetica Cyr Upright' font used for Achtung Baby stuff? Also, the stylised Achtung Baby writing on the cd, is that considered the logo?

I'm not sure but I think "Helvetica Cyr Upright" might be the font used inside the booklet for the lyrics and that kind of thing.
And also on the side of the cd-case where it says "U2 - ACHTUNG BABY"

The writing is not a font from what I've found out but it should be considered the logo in my opinion, I'll upload a good resolution pic of that later as well.

Here's a list of the fonts that I've found out the names for so far:
The one's I've collected are marked with a "*".

Boy - Berling Roman
October - Bernhard Condensed Regular*
War - Block Gothic Bold Extra Condensed
Under A Blood Red Sky - Nimbus Sans
The Unforgettable Fire - Bolide Regular*
Joshua Tree - Legacy Serif Ultra
Rattle And Hum - Compacta Bold BT
Achtung Baby - Helvetica Cyrillic Upright
»One video - Migraine Serif*
Zooropa - Traffic Type Sweden D
Passengers - ?
Pop - Helvetica 45 Light
Best Of - Swiss 721
»Electrical storm Swiss 721
»Sweetest thing Helvetica Ultra Compressed
All That You Can't Leave Behind - Eurostile Extended*(Metrostyle, but it's similar)
»Elevation Tour Live From Boston* -
04b_08
04b_19
04b_31

»Elevation Tour Live From Slane Castle* - Clarendon
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb* - Clarendon
»Vertigo Tour//Live From Chicago* - Housebroken Clean
»the LARRY MULLEN band t-shirt* - Cooper Black
The Complete U2 Digital Box Set- Conduit ITC Bold
U218 Singles - Eurostile Bold Extended #2
» The Saints Are Coming - Aachen Bold Plain
Propaganda "The Melon Issue" #21 1995* - Grunge
»www.u2propaganda.com logo - Prosper Open Cd-Book
EDUN logo - QuaintGothicSG Regular (modified D and U)
Music Rising website logo - Regulator Medium
RED campaign - Trade Gothic Bold Condensed No. 20
Old U2.com logo Lord Haw-Haw
U2BYU2 - Eurostile Bold Extended #2
