It’s part of a 1909 heavy industrial machine Do you have a link to the font you were thinking of, or a hint where I can get it? Permalink Submitted by Hrant H Papazian on 27 March 2002 - 10:51am I’m not good at cataloging this stuﬀ, but if you wait a few hours the people who really know this stuﬀ will come out of the woodwork, with more than you ever wanted to know… :-) hhp Permalink Submitted by Stephen Coles on 27 March 2002 - 11:53am Here are some squared license platers: Core’s Sauerkrauto http://www.core.nu/v6/fonts_full.html Mueller’s FE Engschrift http://www.lineto.com/cont_cat.html?ID=159&dir_id=60 But the type in your sample is a fairly simple. You might do well using a DIN, chopping oﬀ the ‘G’ and then rounding the corners: FF DIN http://www.fontfont.de/packages/din9467/dinbol8320/dinbol8320_xx.html Adobe DIN Mittelschrift http://www.adobe.com:80/type/browser/F/DINS/F_DINS-10005000.html URW Fette Mittelschrift http://www.urwpp.de/cgi-bin1/dalcgi/english/Fliste0.htd?auswahl=4&ﬁrstchar=*din*&fontnummer=f005000d Stephen Permalink Submitted by Hrant H Papazian on 27 March 2002 - 11:56am Stephen, I hope you didn’t take oﬀense at “hours”… hhp Permalink Submitted by Stephen Coles on 27 March 2002 - 12:21pm Not at all. You were right. I’m over 6 hours late. See what happens when I sleep? Permalink Submitted by Anonymous on 27 March 2002 - 1:10pm The DIN fonts are perfect! Not exactly the same thingy, but it has the right atmosphere, my example must be some DIN letters then. Wow, thanks! Permalink Submitted by Joe Pemberton on 27 March 2002 - 5:28pm Here’s one better: Typophile Forums: Critique: Sans Serif: Unicratica (by Ole Sorensen) PS- DIN is great. But buy the FontShop (FontFont) cut. The weights are much more intelligently put together than the other leading brand.
