(x) wide slab serif Stereo - Hellenic Wide {Yves}

I’m killing myself trying to remember the name of a font. It’s a slab serif, fairly squat and extended face that I have most often seen used for the word “stereo” on album covers from the 50s or 60s.

You can picture it, can’t you? But where can I find it?



You’re looking for digitizations of Hellenic Wide. There are a few,
but none of them are “official”.

If your purpose isn’t too serious, there’s a free take on this type
by Swede Per Ellstrom aptly called HiFi Stereo.

The LettError Twins did a contemporary cut for FontFont
called FF Zapata.



Nice work Yves!
