Unusual but beautiful "g"
0

Came across this lovely "g" (top). It's from the movie The Mirror Crack'd (1980).
The font is defenitely Friz Quadrata Bold (bottom), but I haven't seen this "g" before. I thought perhaps it's been derived from "3", but it's not ;)
Does anyone know if there's a different version of Friz Quadrata, or is this custom?

It looks like the original VGC design. Before ITC acquired it.

Are you sure it doesn't say "A3atha", with 3 being z? :)

You will find a similar , just similar, g in the Quadrat-DemiBold (B & P Graphics), Silver (Brendel Informatik), Dispando (NovelFonts!), DennisBecker Bold (SoftMaker Software), OPTIDiamond (Castcraft), Quid Bold (FontBank) and Anticlaire Display (SSI).

@apankrat Yup, I'm sure. It spells the name "Agatha Christie".

@koeiekat Indeed so! Nevertheless, as far as I can see, all these fonts postdate 1980, so it *has* to be Friz Quadrata (1973).

@.00 You must be right, thanks.
