Czechoslovak poster for the Polish movie Dziewczyna i chłopak (1980). Directed by Stanisław Loth, the cinema version of the adventures of Tomek and Tosia is based on a popular TV series of the same name. Known as Kluk Nebo Holka? (“Boy or Girl?”) in Czech, the English title is The Girl and the Boy.

The poster was designed by Eva Heřmanská in 1984. The title typeface is Wiegands Roundhead, a film typeface designed by Jürgen Wiegand and issued by Berthold Fototypes in 1974, with a number of alternates. Roundhead offers a weird mix of rounded and square stroke endings as well as descending and non-descending glyphs, which doesn’t always yield convincing results. Heřmanská exclusively used the capitals. The question mark is probably custom. Wiegand also made a version without rounded terminals, named Wiegands Adbold.
