WIM CROUWEL — auxiliar typeface

Fabiouser's picture

The catalogues of FODOR museum are simply beautiful, the "fodor" typeface is really wonder.
But if you have a look on the name (in this case "Gerard Höweler") that follow every catalogue, that typeface isn't worse.

Does anybody know something about that "typewriter"(?) typeface?

I'd like to know this as well. I know Crouwel devloped a monospace font for use with typewriters, but because the technology had changed before he finished it, I don't believe it was ever released. Plus I think it was more of his standard straight line only grid inspired designs, certainly not a badly inked courier type of thing like this.

Posting a pic here, cuz who knows how long links are good for.

Still unsolved on WhatTheFont Forum. AFAIK, the closest suggestion is Valentine by Stephan Müller for Lineto.

Valentine don't have (to me) the same feeling that the example typeface in Wim Crouwel's catalogue. But I can´t explain why. Valentine seems a beautiful design typeface (I need to explore more), that 'a' makes my head fix in it. Thanks for sharing this @Ryuk :)
