Looking for the name for the font used in this reggae vinyl (UPSETTER)

Recommended Posts


Bottom image attached, looking for the exact typeface they have used or close alternative if the original font can't be found (at least  just the font name). It's from the  sleeve of this vinyl.


Thank you in advance for the help and your time,

And another similar: Alpenkreuzer

Your sample seems to date from 1985, if my Google search can be trusted. That predates most digital typefaces. It may have been a phototypesetting face, or it may have been hand drawn. In any case, it does not appear to have survived into the digital age.

Hello Kevin,


Alpenkreuzee seems really close but the idea that it could be a lettering is also a good lead. Thank you for your help ! Maybe this is the beginning of a new type design project 🙂
