Penguin Book of modern speeches – Sans Serif

Hi there,

any ideas? The design was made by A2SWHK.

Thanks, N

What I could say though is, part of the spurless /a, it is very close to Helvetica. As A2/SW/HK is run by Henrik Kubel, I would probably choose an Helvetica-like from his foundry A2-Type so, why not, New Rail Alphabet (which appears to have the same spurless /a).

Hi Ryuk
didn’t see the caption ... always working with bespoke typefaces ...
That’s what I wasn’t sure about, the ‘a’ ...

Thanks anyway!

I'm now convinced it is New Rail Alphabet. No doubt about it.

I also checked it — thanks again!
