Burko is an ultra-geometric phototype display series designed by David L. Burke before 1969. It is also known as Ad Burko and spans at least 12 styles with inventive names, including six weights (from Thin to Black: Kiss of Burko, Touch of Burko, Son of Burko, Burko Bold, Burko Super Duper, Burko Gorpo), the three-dimensional Burko Shady, two outlined styles (Burko Cop Out and Funko) as well as the rounder Burko Circle. A RyderTypes ad in U&lc Vol. 2-4 from 1975 additionally lists a Burko Bold No. 2 and a Burko Caduce.Burko is a precursor of similar designs like Blippo, Pump or ITC Bauhaus. As it was common at that time, it included various alternates and swash characters. Treacyfaces offers a digital version.
