Hello fine typophiles!

I've got an old manual here for a Nikon Motor Drive. I'm entirely enamored of the large, structural capitals reading 'MD-4' - does anyone happen to recognize this face?

Thanks,

Reed

Ah, thanks for the heads up Jan,

Problem solved.

"Motor Drive" is Futura.

"MD-4" is probably hand-drawn.

"INSTRUCTION MANUAL" is Stymie (note that some versions use a different 'R').

Thanks for the spotting Lex,

I'm afraid I'll have to extrapolate a few more characters from 'MD-4' then. Any recommendations for a similarly structural face?

I'd recommend Filmotype Glenlake from Mark Simonson, even though it's a bit more condensed.

Or even Refrigerator from Mark as well.
