30/33 line Futura Bold

Accommodating the descending tail requires three additional picas. All other capitals in this font are 30 picas.

  1. I don’t know the answer, Thomas, sorry. The Q most closely resembles Futura Extra Bold Condensed, and I’ve been unsuccessful in locating information about the origins of that particular cut. Due to the age (relatively new, probably post 1950) and because it’s side grain, I strongly suspect the type was cut by a little known manufacturer called Allied Wood Type (I have at least one other font that I’m 99% sure was produced by Allied).
