Sans Serif display font on record cover from 1958 (The Thompson Touch)

Recommended Posts

Hello, first post.

Wondering if anyone can help me find this font. Used on a record cover (New Zealand) from 1958. Cover was designed and printed by Coulls Somerville Wilkie Ltd. a New Zealand print company operating in the 40s-70s.

The font on the cover has obviously been customised but only to the extent of the arms thickened and lengthened on the Ts. The lower case 's' seems most distinctive.

Many Thanks

Not finding a historical match—all of it my very well have been hand lettered, not typeset. Resembles the Filmotype series Galaxy/Gable/Garfield/Gamma.

Many thanks - that's a great starting point.
