X-Condensed type for a poster - suggestions?

waves's picture

So I'm doing this poster and don't want to hassle with finding the perfect wood type, but I want something with a little more character that's available in digital. I'm currently using Grotzec X-Narrow Bold with some mods, but I'm not set on it. Hoping to get some other suggestions to very condensed grotesques that look a little more like wood type with interesting idiosyncrasies.

Thanks for the help,
Joseph

If you're reasonably skilled in Photoshop, you can add idiosyncracies by layering or selecting and pasting into the letterforms themselves. Ultracondensed typefaces you might consider...
