A font with little to no counters

Hi!

I am looking for suggestions for typefaces with little or no counters, I want to use large type to put images in.

I immediately thought of Facebuster. I have never used it personally, but it always catches my eye, and such a great name. A font with no counters: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/facetype/grafinc/.

Klimax by Ondrej Jób has little counters in the Plus weight which may help preserve letter shapes if you're going to put images in it.

Tank from Typodermic was designed for framing images. There are counterless alternates.

Joufflou NF fills the bill. Vacation Postcard NF, a freeware font, was developed specifically to mimic image-filled postcard type. A commercial version (improved outlines, expanded character set) will be coming out soon.
