An extralight geometric sans from the phototype era. Origin unclear. Comes in two styles: Slenderella closely follows Futura’s basic design (much like Futura Fineline and Filmotype Genny, but with round counters in ‘a’ or ‘g’). See also Slenderella Refined.
Both styles appear in a c. 1974 Filmomaster specimen as well as in an Alphatype ad from 1985. [U&lc Vol. 12 No. 2] Also shown in Castcraft’s Encyclopedia (1978).
Not to be confused with the digital Slenderella which is a version of Bernhard Fashion.
