>>> Type ID Pop Quiz V2.4 - Expert Level

Bald Condensed's picture

This is how it works:

  • A portion of a glyph is published in the Type ID Pop Quiz.
  • Try to identify the glyph and the typeface. To win, you need to name at least:
    1. typeface
    2. weight
    3. character/glyph
  • Show off your knowledge by casually mentioning additional trivia, like who designed it, when and by whom was it (first) published, and other cool stuff to impress your fellow Typophiles with.
  • The winner produces a new challenge -- a portion of a glyph, black on white background, presented in a 288 x 288 pixel square, including a R204G000B00 1 pixel border.
  • The person who posts a challenge can't win the next game.

In case of any disputes, I will act as judge, jury and avenging angel of wrath.

If you think this is a little too difficult, maybe try the Entry Level Type ID Pop Quiz or Intermediary Level Type ID Pop Quiz first.

Good luck everyone, and have fun. ;^)

Bingo! Well done Paul. You're on.

Let's give that a shot.

That's probably a square outline typeface.

Hint #2. The foundry is on the east coast of the US.

I thought of H&FJ's Cyclone but I can't find a matching glyph.

A foundry from the ‘First State’, maybe?

paulstonier's picture

You could say that, Florian.

Alright! So, is it the ampersand from House Gothic 23 Condensed Black?

You got it. You're up, Florian.
