Greetings type wizards,

I wanted to see if anyone could ID this. The typeface is the same as this author's previous novel "The Lovely Bones." We didn't get it last time, thought I would try again. Thanks for your help. - Chris

Looks lile FF Din to me.

As far as I know there isn’t a rounded FF DIN.

Maybe manipulated. Btw. Isn't the a FF Din rounded in development?

Nah, that's Nick Cooke's slightly marvelous Chevin.

BTW FF DIN Round is indeed in development.

Now that I look closely -- it's not Chevin. :^/

Not likely, but you never know.

It looks like a genuine rounded DIN Mittelschrift. I believe that there is a 'rogue' version out there. Stephen knows.

I'm not sure that's Chevin - the 'S' is too DIN-like.

There are rounded DINs out there, like Normalise DIN or DIN 17, but neither is an exact match.

Yes it's not FF Din, i checked it, smells like lineto, etc.

Nice poster btw

What would you get when you fatten up this DIN (17 SB)?

Stefan, it's a book cover, not a poster. Her first book was a smash success so they have replicated the design, even the title is similar.

That's what happens when I take time to proofread my posts :^)

Because this type matches the FF DIN skeleton exactly, I'm inclined to believe it is either an advance copy of Albert-Jan Pool's DIN Rounded or the 2002 modification by Mattias Jakobsson.

Thanks, Patty, for the link to the "Lovely Bones" cover. This confirms my guess that it's based on FF DIN Bold. Even the arguably loose 'LY' kern is the same.

Chris Keegan's picture

Thanks everyone.

FF DIN Round has finally been released.
