It is rather rare to see two weights of the Signal family — the heavy Block-Signal and the thin Script-Signal — used side by side, beyond type specimens.
Note the quaint ‘tz’ ligature in Jakob Erbar’s Candida — a slab serif echo of the glyph that still graces many Berlin street signs. The lettering model used for the latter is loosely based on Erbar-Grotesk by the same designer.
7 years ago I found on a german “Flohmarkt” a box within brand new 20 Oli-Rotomins!
I sold 17 of them worldwide and it is a funny idea with a rotating pencil!
