Identify a font
0

Dear all,

I would like to identify a typewriter font.

My research on Identifont allowed me to come close the solution, but few details prevented me from identifying the font.

The closest font is the "FF Trixie", but "8" and "D" do not correspond.

I used the "Fonts by similarity" option (www.identifont.com) and went on the website of the "FF Trixie" publisher (http://www.fontfont.com), to find similar fonts. Again I came close the design I am faced with. The font was named "FF Elementa Rough". But once again, some details did not match ("3").

In both cases, the "1" did not match, but we can imagine that the typer used the "I" to do the "1". So, this difference doesn't have the same importance.

I also used the 'WhatTheFont' search engine and it didn't work.

And the problem is that I'm not looking for a digital font that simulates a traditional worn mechanical typewriter, but a font produced by a real mechanical typewriter.

I send you a sample of the questioned document as an attachment. If someone knows... It could really help me!

Regards,
Emmanuelle Sciacca.

The obvious solution is to buy a real mechanical typewriter: they ought to be pretty cheap, if you can find one...
