"Bauhaus-Style" Font Identification Guide - Part 5

SQUARED

Part 5 continues the "Bauhaus-style" Font Identification Guide with geometric fonts that have somewhat squared forms. Again, the normally round letters like "O" and "o" are flattened on top, sides and bottom, and nearly as wide as they are high.

The fonts on this page all share the feature of having squared (but not angular) letterforms , and they all have a strong geometric simplicity dominating their designs. It is my subjective judgement to group these fonts together.

The complete "Bauhaus-Style" Font Identification Guide consists of the Introduction followed by seven parts that separate the type faces according to their dominant geometric and/or typographic design features.

The seven parts are:

Part 1: Round Sans; Part 2: Round Semisans; Part 3: Oval; Part 4: Oblong; Part 5: Squared;
Part 6: Curved; and Part 7: Uncial

I welcome your comments, as well as suggestions for other faces to be included in this Guide. - Mike Yanega
