A condensed slab serif drawn by Alex Stocker, apparently to accompany a series of decorated capital alphabets by Paul Sollberger, Bern. Reproduced in the first volume of Lettera (1954) as Air Mail.
A phototype adaptation is shown in Dan X. Solo’s Condensed Alphabets: 100 Complete Fonts (Dover, 1986) as Marla.
