I wonder what the giant woman-eating cat is about. A reference to the lyrics of Mitchell’s “Hunter”?
Fun fact: three of the typefaces for which we posted in-use examples today, Apollo, Primitive and Neptun, appeared together on the same page of Petzendorfers Schriftenatlas, Neue Folge, a type and lettering compendium published between 1903 and 1905.
All three faces have double lines in some of the letters (for Neptun, see the diagonal crossbar in A and H).
This isn’t were the similarities end, though: in the 1960s, they all were adopted for phototypesetting as part of the Morgan Press Collection by Headliners. A decade later, they were all added to Letraset’s Letragraphica range for dry transfer lettering: first Primitive (before 1976), and then Apollo and Neptun in 1978.
