I'm working on a project at the moment that strongly references the late 1930s (in the UK)... but was surprised to discover that most of the typefaces I had in mind (Gill, Futura, Kabel etc) as characteristic of the 30s were actually designed in the 20s... clearly I needed to return to the textbooks! - but further research still didn't really turn up anything suitable from the period.
So I'd be very grateful for suggestions of (sans?) typefaces from the second half of the 30s that aren't too eccentric or deco (the project has plenty of deco ornament already), and which don't look 'historical' - ie which still look contemporary enough to pass.
Many thanks, in advance, Team Typophile :-)
