Seeking a showing of Kobe.

Mike F's picture

I wonder if anyone here might have a decent showing of the old Art Nouveau typeface Kobe that they might be willing to scan and send my way. Right now all I've got is a small, low-res, curled page scan.

I need Kobe (solid), not Kobe Open.

Amongst all of my books and catalogs, I find only one limited showing of Kobe Open – which is useless for my needs. I don't think that it is on any of the Dover/Dan Solo CD-ROMs, but perhaps in one of their 100 Font picture books?

Mike, just a snippet of your small, low-res, curled page scan would probably be helpful...

I make no guarantees that I can find it, but Dan Solo gave me several assorted specimen sheets a his typeface catalog in the late '80s ( I can't remember if Kobe was included). It's probably buried under at least a ton of paper, but if I can find it over the weekend I will scan and send it to you.

Yes, I'm old, you can tell by the junk I kept!

Shu, I think at this point we are all interested. Can you post it for all? Or, I could post it for all of us to see as well.
