These are fascinating … I especially love that custom ligature for “ra” in Fat Face — gorgeous!
The stroke contrast in this phototype version of Fat Face seems much higher to me (thinner thin strokes) than the currently available digital version. Which makes wonder if there were multiple versions of the original phototype version, for use at different sizes.
I think you can add Green Buzzard in use here too, as the 8 on the cover for Grafika 8 appears to match. Probably set in the 6171n variant.
Great catch, Patrick! No doubt about that: here’s a couple of glyphs from Green Buzzard, including the 8, from an article in the Jan/Feb 1971 issue of Print magazine.
