Hi There. First time post.
I'm looking for the variant of Futura that IKEA is currently using. The closest one I have found is Elsner+Flake Futura New (which I can't even find for purchase anywhere, but did find on Identifont).
It's similar to that, and EF Futura 6 Heavy, with some differences. In general, the differences that I have noted between most versions of Futura and the IKEA 2005 catalog version (Heavy/Bold weight) are:
In the IKEA version...
$ has line through entire glyph
S and $ shaped more like S from Avenir
j curved *unlike* E+F New, but *like* most editions of Futura
1 has angled serif
M and W have flat spurs
, " are rounded
e has angled tail even in Bold weight
m and n are slightly less "symmetrical"
Any thoughts would be most appreciated. Thanks!
