Eclectic Pelican exhibition poster

The Roberta from MyFonts cannot be compared to the one from Harold’s: too clumsy and with badly rounded counters. The advantage, however, is that there are also lowercase letters.
The Roberta available from MyFonts is by Ralph M. Unger and published by profonts, a label by URW++, now owned by Monotype. Unger sady doesn’t credit his specific sources, but instead claims that “Roberta goes back to the old poster fonts of the 1930s.”
Harold Lohner’s digitization spans various styles, four of which include lowercase letters (like the predigital version).
Yes, thanks Florian, in the meantime the purchase from FontsBros has also worked out.
However, I still have to criticize that all digital font styles are drawn straight at the top and bottom, which is why they look much less attractive. Or should I name it “less organic”?
