    A rare sighting of Tangui, on the book jacket for the hardback edition of The Game-Players of Titan by White Lion Publishers, Ltd., 1974. It’s contrasted with the weighty Gill Kayo.

    Conceived by Colombian designer Gustavo Pardo Sarmiento, Tangui was selected as a winner in Letraset’s International Typeface Competition 1973. It added to the wave of wire-like faces that mix single and double monolinear strokes, see also Monika (1970), Eggomania (1971), Neo Script and Branding (1972), Duo (1973), Burgondy Right (1974), or Hairpin (1975). Tangui was digitized by Jonathan Hill as TenGu (The Northern Block, 2009).
