The Beatles: Get Back documentary
1 Comment on “The Beatles: Get Back documentary”
Matthijs wonders if the calendar is a contemporary creation made for the documentary, or if it’s an original from the 1960s. This weight of Venus was named breit dreiviertelfett (literally “wide three quarters bold”) in German, and at least the size of the metal version shown in the specimen I’m looking at had numerals with horizontal terminals – like in the calendar, but unlike in Scangraphic’s Venus SB Bold Extended. Venusian Bold Extended, a digitization by Wooden Type Fonts from 2018, is a better match in that regard, but suffers from poor spacing and some botched glyphs, see e.g. the flat-tire S or U – I hope the production designer didn’t bother to fix that mess. I’m not aware of a digital version that matches the type on the calendar in all details, so it could be originally vintage indeed.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! This is absolutely awesome. Phe
