Help!? Dennis Wilson's Gatefold

info-off's picture

Hi all,

It would be awesome if you could identify the font stating "WILSON" in this sample!

The gatefold album is from 1977.

Hi DPape,

Nice one, but the creation dates are bad. I am looking for something ca. 1977. Knockout is from the mid 1990s no?

If the shoe fits, buy it !?

Ironically, I own Knock-out but I am not looking for something that "looks like" the font. I am looking for the font.

But that said, I am very appreciative of your keen eye. Thank you.

I will keep looking.

info-off: If you're looking for the original 1970's font, would you prefer the 80 pounds of lead sorts to mount in your Linotype machine or possibly something that fits your Filmotype system? I guarantee that you will never find a 1970's TrueType or Type1 font. This one or any other!
