An unexpected use of Paul Renner’s less known sans-serif, Plak, for official placards in the NYC subway.
It’s helvetica bold, the kerning is just slightly sqished and the letter height was stretched slightly.
Naw, have another look at Plak Black Condensed. Maybe we should have a separate Plak entry for that style since it’s so different from Plak Black. We do have Extra Condensed. I’ll use that typeface tag for this one.
