Zapata is a late addition to the Filmotype library in the tradition of simplified German blackletter faces from the 1930s, but not a direct revival of any. ‘I’ and ‘M’ have crossbars. Shown in an undated (c.1974) Filmomaster catalog. Not yet shown in their 1958 catalog (nor in the 1972 VGC catalog which has copies of most of the Filmotype faces).
