BON: I recognise that face!

I was browsing today in the bookstore in Grand Centran Station, New York, when a magazine leapt out at me. A stylish fashion mag from Sweden, called Bon had a masthead that was very familiar. It used a typeface (Garbo) that I designed for Mecanorma in 1975, when I was a student. The font was discontinued some years back and sadly I've no reference of the entire font. Over the years I've seen Garbo used on everything from neon brasseries signage in Paris to ice cream parlours in Phuket, but I think Bon make it look pretty cool.

I can´t find the typeface, give us some links or a picture!

Dan X. Solo digitized the typeface for Dover Publications and called it “Greta”. It comes with the CD-ROM and book “24 Moderne Display Fonts”.

Thanks Bob, great detective work.
