Trying to find this mono serif used in the pamphlet at the Brooklyn Museum's showing of Virgil Abloh's "Figures of Speech" exhibit. Was used in other "Figures of Speech" exhibits in other cities, but this pamphlet has the clearest example of the font:

Been driving me and my friends crazy. It's really nice, and would love to find it.

Reminds me of typewriter (or possibly a printer) font. Because of being mono-spaced, and the way the 'M' and 'W' are constrained.

Yeah, looking for "typewriter" didn't help unfortunately as most of them are stylized.

Trying to find one with square dots is hard, since I don't know the best way to narrow that down.

Is there a design credit in the pamphlet? I have sometimes reached out to the designer directly to inquire about these kinds of pressing questions!

This was a custom font made for the exhibition. Guess it's lost to time
