Another "little" font: only 1,5 bricks x-height (2 bricks for the upercase) with 2:2 filters. Inspired -just only the rounded aspect- by the great Frankfurter font, whose original (heavy) weight was designed by Bob Newman in the Letraset studio and issued in 1970. In 1978, Medium (the only style to include a lowercase, by Alan Meeks) and Highlight (by Nick Beishaw) were added. Inline (by Studio) followed in 1981. Our well know FSr escaphandro build Choripán, an excellent actualization of the classic font. BTW, my accents and other few glyphs must be improved. WIP.

Does anyone remember the transferable letters or I am the only old man in the neighborhood?

i remember them too :))

the most popular local brand was "propisot" (literally something like "write-through"), so, these sheets of transferable letters were usually called "propisots" here.

Very nice font and demo. I remember the transferable letters too. We called it Letraset after the company's name. I used them a lot to put labels on photographs for publication. There were lines, arrows, arrowheads, and asterisks as well. There were white letters and black letters with white outlines too. Actually, they are still available on Amazon. For your excellent font: 10/10

lovely soft design

@jirinvk, @Frodo7 & @swash.buckler: Thank you very much, my friends. I used those transferable letter sheets when I started in the world of advertising and graphic design, when computers had not yet become popular. In most of those works I could only include the headlines, and the inside texts were put in the printing workshop. It is striking to me to remember it. 😉

This is so cool. Especially at 2 bricks tall. So smooth.
