Las Vegas Huntridge Theatre type

wcameron10's picture

Looking to see if this is was originally a typeface or if it was created specifically for this signage. It can be found on the to of the Huntridge Theatre in Las Vegas, which was opened in 1944. Any attempts would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for the alternatives, looking for something a little different I guess. Possibly more towards "Neutraface," its condensed version is a little closer. I guess I may have been looking for more of a history lesson on that sort of signage type rather than alternative newly developed faces. Is there a source for type history for this era you would recommend? I know the majority of the Deco era type specimens are hand rendered for each specific usage but complete typefaces from this era have been fairly evasive. Suggestions?

Evasive? I think not; here are the fonts of mine I classify as Art Deco…

Yeah! That's a list! A preview for each would have been preferred though (kidding ;))

I understand that there are plenty of art deco fonts available. I was speaking of the lack of authentic Deco faces available today, or at least my knowledge of, and asked for any resources that may document these so I could research them a little further. Although, I have noticed a few on your list that were designed before 1950, it would be nice to understand a little history of the faces rather than accepting the style and depending on modern renditions to fill the gap. Thanks for the list though, I will continue to peruse through these for the time being.
