Very happy that “Fontina” is included.

  1. For those who don’t know this classic party game yet, please dive into

    The black extended oblique grotesque (“Grevé”, “Bjalo”) is included in URW’s Helvetica clone Nimbus Sans as “D(isplay) Diagonal”. Berthold has it as Standard Diagonal. I wonder about its origins.

    The rounded Futura (“Mondseer”, “Galotiri”) seems unavailable in digital form. It is rounder than URW’s Futura Round and clearly different from VAG Rundschrift.

    Any takers for “Gorgonzola” and “Cheshire”?

  2. Neuzeit for Gorgonzola?

  3. That could very well be, yes. Added.

  5. Looks like they made a tybo at the end.

  6. Chesire, Feta, and Cheddar could be set in Manutius.

  7. I think you nailed it, Riccardo. Good call!
