Looking to identify some grotesque fonts from WWI material

Recommended Posts

Amalie

Hello,

I'm looking to identify some grotesque fonts from WWI material I have. First one is "GUERRE" which has a significant "R" and second one is a condensed grotesque with a significant "a". I'm looking for digital versions of these fonts, if possible.

Thank you.

GUERRE is proving elusive—definitely a grotesque, but finding nothing historical or modern with that curved to straight-footed R. Maybe a European variation of AWT Hamilton Gothic?

For Bekendmaking, the modern font Steelfish Extrabold might work for you.

Far from exact matches, but here’s a modern typeface that could inspire similar feelings:

To a lesser extent, perhaps also FF Bau or Acumin could work.
