Unusual but beautiful "g"

Jean Paul Beumer's picture

Came across this lovely "g" (top). It's from the movie The Mirror Crack'd (1980).
The font is defenitely Friz Quadrata Bold (bottom), but I haven't seen this "g" before. I thought perhaps it's been derived from "3", but it's not ;)
Does anyone know if there's a different version of Friz Quadrata, or is this custom?

It looks like the original VGC design. Before ITC acquired it.

Are you sure it doesn't say "A3atha", with 3 being z? :)

You will find a similar , just similar, g in the Quadrat-DemiBold (B & P Graphics), Silver (Brendel Informatik), Dispando (NovelFonts!), DennisBecker Bold (SoftMaker Software), OPTIDiamond (Castcraft), Quid Bold (FontBank) and Anticlaire Display (SSI).

@apankrat Yup, I'm sure. It spells the name "Agatha Christie".

@koeiekat Indeed so! Nevertheless, as far as I can see, all these fonts postdate 1980, so it *has* to be Friz Quadrata (1973).

@.00 You must be right, thanks.
