Original typeface?

Curious if these two typefaces can be identified, or are original designs? Found on old Polish book cover. Closest match I've found to "botanika" is Neo Sans Ultra, but there are clear differences.

botanika is Blok and Aniela Kozlowska is Paneuropa from the Foundry Jan Idzkowski in Warsaw.
After World War II the Foundry operated under the name Odlewnia Czcionek.

Great - can these typefaces be found anywhere today?

Original was created as Blockfamilie by Poppelbaum in Vienna, produced later by several type foundries in Austria, Germany, Russia and Poland
