Getty Museum - Foundry Form Sans & Serif {Hrant}

hrant's picture

Today I was at the Getty Museum, and they had an exhibit
called "Devices of Wonder". Anyway, throughout the exhibit
as well as the support materials they're using a couple of
nice typefaces, a sans and a serif, which look related.

The sans especially looks very familiar, but I just can't
put my finger on it (all I know is, it looks very Unger).
As for the serif, it looks like a variant of a recently
released font, but there's some notable differences.

So here's a scan:

I'd really like to find out what these
two fonts are, and who designed them.

Note: Please do not email me any fonts!
I'd just like to know what the fonts are.

Thanks.

Here's a better view of the sans:

Argo was my first guess too, and it's certainly close... but it's not exactly the same. :-( The most obvious difference I saw is the UC "M".

I believe the sans is Argo, from the Dutch Type Library. Here's a link:

The serif looks awfully familiar, too, but I can't place it.

The serif font reminds me of (but clearly isn't) Martin Majoor

Hi,
I am also interested in what you found - but unfortunately I could not get through to the links you provided; may you please let me know the name of the Sans font?
Many thanks in advance.
Max
