Probably best asked on doctype.com where there are more graphic designers. –  Rahul Nov 6 '10 at 17:55

new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/forum is also a very good place for these kind of questions. –  TomvB Nov 6 '10 at 23:32

This is Futura.

Here's a screenshot of the same text in Futura on my computer: http://i.stack.imgur.com/ZETTG.png

Some of the clues that indicate it's the same font:

  • The perfectly round o
  • The point at the bottom of the v
  • The flat angles at the top and bottom of the b's vertical bar (and other similar vertical bars, like on the n and the r)
  • The perfectly geometric e, and the angle of the e's point
  • The shape of the round part of the b -- it's based on two circles that are slightly offset, so it's narrower toward the left and thicker toward the bottom right

Using identifont.com this looks like Futura. Possibly Futura, Futura (BT) or Futura (URW).

Here's a direct link to the font search I performed: http://www.identifont.com/identify?16+november+1IU+N2Q+97+23+9M+31+F2U+F+9D+7UX+NQE+PAF+G39+9J+9Z+L+M

The Identify Result section on the left shows the other two Futura options lower on the list.
