Twin Peaks

10 line Kabel

With splayed stems and sharply pointed apices and vertex, Kabel’s capital M bears a striking resemblance to that of its contemporary, Futura. The identifying distinction is the eight-degree angled terminals to Kabel’s vertical stems.

This block comes from a complete end grain font that includes capitals, lowercase, figures, and punctuation. Kabel was called No. 803 by The Hamilton Manufacturing Company who showed it alongside Bernhard Gothic Medium (No. 807) in their Wood Type Catalog 38, 1938.
