(x) Classic grotesque w/ songle storey 'a' - AG Schoolbook Two {Patricia}

1UP's picture

Looks like a hybrid of Avant Garde and Akzidenz Grotesk.

Thanks guys! Good eye.
Looks like it could be both.
But more likely AG Schoolbook, no?

Why more likely?

Jan's picture

It’s AG Schoolbook. There are differences.

Cool. Then that's what it is. Just wondered what Joakim meant by "likely".

Except the 'I' in the sample isn't curvy. Does the sample have anything to do with Design Museum? I believe they made/commissioned a custom AG Schoolbook with a straight 'I'.

The 'l' in the sample IS curvy, that's what led me to Schoolbook.

I think the most obvious difference is the lc g.


top: AG Schoolbook
bottom: FF Schulbuch

Lex - The Design Museum's face is a customized FF Schulbuch Nord.

Stephen: By likely I simply meant it looked more like the image than Schulbuch. Could be wrong though, they are very similar.

I didn’t mean to correct Patty but placed my guess simultaneously – look at the time-stamps.

Except the ’I’ in the sample isn’t curvy.
Lex: There’s AG Schoolbook and FF Schulbuch Süd which both have a curved ‘I’ (that is: uc eye, not lc el! – why don’t we have a Georgia Schoolbook?!)
And there’s AG Schoolbook Two (or ‘A’) and FF Sb Nord, both with a straight ‘I’.

It’s AG Schoolbook. There are differences.
I think Jan is right; AG Schoolbook Two. (Btw, this version has nothing to do with Akzidenz Grotesk) Then, this sample is so small … could be just another custom version of a Helvetica Schoolbook.
