Hi,

I am working on a project about the history of graphical user interfaces. So I collect everything I can find. One aspect is also the typography of guis and I wonder what kind of display fonts NeXT has used e.g. for menus, window labels and icon descriptions.



I could already build that font myself but then I still wouldn't know the name of it. Besides if there is already this font available as TrueType or something else one could use on a "modern" pc like my mac Smile I would appreciate it very much if someone could give me a link.

I am looking forward to a reply.

Cheers, berengar

What The Font came up with a few possibilities, but this was the most likely:

Thank you for the reply pergamon. It looks quite similar but unfortunately it's not what I am looking for. I mean it is not the exact font (though the big "A" is quite the same but then when I look at the small "a", hmmm....)

There must be an exact information / description about this font somewhere, someone must have designed it Smile

Cheers, berengar
