Upright letterforms with rounded corners for technical drawing, as defined in the German industry standard, DIN, in 1938. [Pool]
Berthold Fototypes offered both DIN 17 and the inclined DIN 16. [Berthold 1974] So did Letraset. [1969 leaflet] In or before 1975, Letraset later added a second weight: DIN 17m (for Micronorm) is lighter, slightly wider, and distinguished by a monocular ‘a’. See also Normalisé Din (Mecanorma, 1968).
Digitally available from Scangraphic. Peter Wiegel did another digitization under the GDR name, TGL 0-17. See also the upright styles of FF DIN Round and DIN Next Rounded.
