“A village where every road sign, poster, and product sold has a single uniform font? […] That’s not at all sinister …” — usvsth3m
In 1994, Mark Heiman created a digital font to closely resemble the modified Albertus as used in The Prisoner. The freebie is available from a fan site. A superior and more original (although less close) approximation would be Gerard Unger’s Alverata. It doesn’t come with an uncial ‘e’, but features a Ukrainian letter Ie (є).
The City of London adopted Albertus for street signs.
I love the fact that Omagari put that 'e’ into Albertus Nova as an alt.
