And another...   ::)



i did placed Helvetica Narrow Bold over it, and that looks very simular.
only the S and the C are a bit different as you can see..

Does anybody know if there is an exact match, or do i need to ajust this manually ?



Thanks in advance again!

That's the closest I could find but it's not perfect (check the C in special).
Futura Bold is OK but I'm not 200% convinced about the alternate gothic N°2.
I'll send you my illustrator file, it's easier.

A new image for the True Type Challenge  :D



It looks a bit like "twentieth-century-poster-mt"

http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/agfa/twentieth-century-poster-mt

Anybody got that font for me ? ( or better an exact match  ? ;D )

It's very Art Deco style. What's it for?
