I am curious as to what typeface was used on the Mac OS 9 & early Mac OS X boxes. Where it reads "Installing Mac OS 9". The slopes of the letters are slightly different than any font that comes pre-installed on a modern Mac, and the 9 is obviously quite unique looking. If anyone is aware of the typeface name please let me know. Danke.
The font being used is Apple Garamond. This was used by Apple as one of its corporate fonts since the Mac was first launched in 1984 up until the early 2000s.
