"Bauhaus-Style" Font Identification Guide - Part 6


Part 6 continues the "Bauhaus-style" Font Identification Guide with the curved letterforms that are the last geometric form grouping in this Guide.

The fonts on this page all share the feature that curves, or arcs, rather than circles, dominate the designs. I was particularly guided by the upper case "G" in placing some fonts in this group, rather than Round. Some have also been placed with the Round designs to help in identification. 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
