Yeah, there are some old Photo-Lettering faces that are also similar, but I couldn’t find an exact match.
I found an exact match for it in an old Mecanorma catalog, a face called Poster. Whether that’s the original name or not, hard to say.
Actually, that’s probably it. Normatone and Normacolor were products of Mecanorma, along with Normatype. Maybe Letter-Press was an earlier trade name?
Thanks for the ID Mark! I figured if anyone would be abe to track it down it’d be you. I’ve updated the font list accordingly.
Add another to the list of “grr” moments produced from seeing a great image available only in low-res Instagram format.
Thanks for helping out, Mark! Which Mecanorma catalog do you have? I just snagged Graphic Book 14.
I have a 1975 edition (gray cover).
