Show bill style self-contained words

lil's picture

Hi there,

sometimes in vintage style show bills or packaging, you see these self-contained words, generally "and", "with", "to", etc.

I have attached an example, which is circled within the poster.

Does anyone know of a modern font specialising in this type of thing? I found one once, but can't remember the name. Plus, I don't know what the correct term for these "self-contained words" is, which makes searching difficult.

Would appreciate help.

This came up once before but I can't find the node. One such typeface is Brothers Word Logos from Emigre. I want to say House has another but the old brain is just grinding when I turn the key.

Thanks, that's really helpful. Although, I think the one that I have seen previously might have been more extensive... so if anyone knows of anything else?
