I think I saw that kristall typeface in a certain movie about the DDR. Or one just like it!alg
It was definitely that one—I know I saw it on one of the big Daro Optima electrics in Das Leben der Anderen. (we watched that together didn't we?)
Indeed we did. Congrats on your find.alg
Congratulations on getting those fantastic typewriters. I really love the Kristall type face on the Sigma 1000 very clean and clear. Easy to read.
I love the Kristall type face. Do you know who designed it?
I do not know!The famous Alex Bertram designed a typeface used by Robotron, Venezia, although I have never seen it in practice, which is a shame because it's a lovely italic. http://ilovetypography.com/2013/04/06/socialist-tv-typeface-videtur-finally-freed/ (scroll down to see Venezia)
