    A Microsoft ad in the program for a typography conference, combining fonts from their past logos (see 1975 and 2012). Things used to be so funky.

      Isn’t New Zelek in here too?

      You may be right, Hans! The ICR which comes from the 1980 version of the MS logo does match New Zelek, a typeface which originated in the 1970s. The logo was likely a modification of the typeface. Here is a version of the font available from ParaType.
