Not exactly an ID request

I'm looking for some display type for a book. The book will contain lots of images of objects (kites, actually) that have type on them, and I'd like to use a display type that's similar. I've attached an image.

I feel like I've seen block lettering like this 1000 times, but just can't come up with anything quite right. Most very square fonts are too industrial/techy, or too literally constructivist. The subject matter is Central American, so Russian stuff is all wrong. There's also a pretty strong link to Mayan culture, so something like Copal could work, though Copal itself is far too whimsical. A handmade look is ok, but nothing too informal.

The closest I've gotten is Paz by Sudtipos. It's too wide and too industrial though.

Thanks for the help...

Thanks for these, guys. Getting closer! Public Gothic is aaaaaalmost it, and the price is right. Think I'll pick it up and keep looking as well.

Two Mexican options: Barrilito and Miniblock.

Agggghhhh, Miniblock is awesome. I'm not sure I can get away with it for this, but I want to use it for something.
