50's french diamond lineal lettering

Hey,

I found this lettering in " La lettre dans la peinture et la publicité" of J. Joveneaux, edited in 1957 by Charles Massin (Paris).
I'm looking for a similar digital typeface.
Thank's for any help.

Nick Curtis has a faceted font. Double D NF, which has a similar effect:

For a previous discussion of this type of font see:

Searches for faceted, bevelled and prismatic turn up other similar fonts.

The lettering was probably derived from the font Diament designed by J. Lehmann for Shiftgruss in 1937. It seems identical to Diament except for a narrower stroke width. Diament seems not to have been digitized.

Thanks for help.
The Lehmann's Diamant aspect is really near.
I think Turnpike should work.
If anyone found better, let me know...

Hi Ryuk. As usual you have posted a good selection. Link for Faux Occident should be

BTW Playtype's flashing image is very offputting. Can't see how it helps sales.
