The typeface in which the title is set is Westminster, devised at the Westminster Bank (which later merged with the National & Provincial to become the National Westminster) in the early 1960s in imitation of the MICR digits printed on cheques in order to make them computer-readable. As those were at the time the only contact most people had with computers, this typeface was often used to convey a "high-tech" or "futuristic" feel, but it looks horribly dated today.
