Truly a unique conflicted lettering style, tapered strokes that suggest the future like the 1920s film Metropolis

and repressed mico mouse tails that say we are the the straight-laced British and don't really let ourselves go wild.
I wonder if anyone has fonted this?
No close substitutes, but here is a serif font with tapered strokes, but a whimsical and informal flavor, Phil Bracco's Spidertoes
