19th century posters typefaces
0

I'm looking for authentic typefaces for the 19th century stacked poster look. I'm thinking condensed slabserifs etc. I've attached an image of the look the client is going for, but I don't think it's a particularly good example. I'd also be keen to hear of any modern takes on the style. If anyone has any suggestions it'd be much appreciated.
thanks,

Giza provides a very versatile Egyptian for this sort of thing.

http://Champion Gothic, http://Knockout, and Bureau Grot are good for covering the Industrial Sans styles.

The members of the http://Proteus Project offer some additional stylistic options, but aren't as versatile in terms of widths.
