Kabel is a geometric sans serif, similar to Futura, Erbar, and Nobel. It is best characterized by its angular stroke endings, its Venetian e, and its distinctive g (similar to the lowercase g used in many Koch designs, including Koch Antiqua and Wallau).
Victor Caruso designed a version of Kabel for ITC in the 1970s, named ITC Kabel, which is not faithful to the original design. Similar to ITC Garamond, ITC Kabel has an excessively large x-height, created to please New York advertising tastes of the day.
