(x) The Avalanches "Since I Left You" album cover - Tasmin Bold {Mike F}

Does anybody know the font using?
Thanks to help me !


Reminds me of Busorama, but that's not it.

looks a bit like Nick Curtis' Grenadier, maybe modified...

This is an astonishing album, but unfortunately they used that same typeface in orange on a similar textured background at a tiny point size for the credits... impossible to read. So frustrating, as I'm really interested in what samples they used.

The typeface was a predigital one called Tasmin Bold. The only digital version of Tasmin (and it happens to be the bold, too) I've ever come across is called Tango by Softkey/WSI. That's an unholy alliance of ripoff fonts cloners but, again, I know of no other version in font form. You can see it here:

Fontage's webmaster doesn't provide for the download of fonts that she doesn't know for certain to be legitimately free. No doubt, however, a Google search formatted just so will turn up the font itself.

You nailed it Mike. It's shown in the Solotype Catalog (p.164) and in one of the Dover font books that show complete fonts from the Solotype Catalog. I don't know which one offhand, but I used a scan from it for the showing of Tasmin in my Bauhaus Font ID Guide.

Thanks Mike. Yours is a much better showing.
