A font with little to no counters

I am looking for suggestions for typefaces with little or no counters, I want to use large type to put images in.

I immediately thought of Facebuster. I have never used it personally, but it always catches my eye, and such a great name. A font with no counters: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/facetype/grafinc/.

Klimax by Ondrej Jób has little counters in the Plus weight which may help preserve letter shapes if you're going to put images in it.

Dez Squeeze works well as a picture frame

Tank from Typodermic was designed for framing images. There are counterless alternates.

Joufflou NF fills the bill. Vacation Postcard NF, a freeware font, was developed specifically to mimic image-filled postcard type. A commercial version (improved outlines, expanded character set) will be coming out soon.
