A showing of Camelia in a Letraset handbook (1985). Numbers and punctuation are shown (and probably offered) in a single width.
Thanks for posting a glyph set, Matthijs! Interesting to see that Tony Wenman (or Letraset) couldn’t decide on two shapes for the Q, of all letters. It’s a shame that Letraset’s successors didn’t bother to include the narrow forms in the digitization.
I wonder if the numerals were used a lot. Certainly odd that they are old-style. In the alphabetic characters, extenders are oppressed, but the numerals get to stretch out?!
Just learned from DDR Reklame that the Konsum logo was designed by Karl Thewalt in 1959.
