Permalink Submitted by Martin Archer on 22 September 2002 - 11:23am That’s a Letraset font from the early 80’s, I think. Can’t put a name on it yet… Permalink Submitted by Mark Simonson on 22 September 2002 - 10:38pm Martin, you’re on the right track. It looks like Transmission, a 1983 Letraset font. I think it was based on the font, rather than set in the font. The original font had fake scan lines. Some of the characters have been changed—serifs removed or added. The N is completely diﬀerent. The M is identical. The rest of the letters are very similar.

I tried once to track down an ITC font called AKI LINES — but found nuthin’ on the web . thanks s,m,m! nick — graphic designer/CA Permalink Submitted by Mark Simonson on 23 September 2002 - 11:32pm I don’t think it ever made it to digital (ironic since it looks like it’s meant to look like a CRT raster). I don’t know where you could get an old Letraset catalog (I’m keeping mine). Permalink Submitted by Tanya Sprowl on 2 October 2002 - 8:30pm most art supply stores still have the Letraset catalogs in their back shelves — some with boxes of transfer sheets in storage…but go quick quick…Letraset is discommisioning alot of the transfers — once the set is gone — its gone gone. they only sell digital products now.

It’s got those typical “M” and “W” shapes, although it’s entirely built with straight lines.
