¬*One of the numerous sans serif typefaces, but definitely
not Johnston.


¬*I was a little surprised that "Sans Serif" as an April Fool,
was the lowest scoring one in yesterday's "Pointless", despite
the really heavy¬* hints in the question about lower/upper
case.

Where did the spaghetti harvest come?


Much higher (which surprised me because it was significantly
earlier).


Circa 1957 IIRC whereas San Serif was in the 1970s.


They are still good April Fools.

In the bad old days you may have needed a trip to the St Bride
library off Fleet Street to research obscure fonts. I think it's
closed down now that everyone has the Internet.


Still there (plague aside):

Thank you. It used to be like visiting a small chapel on a higher
floor, although that may have changed. Not worth a detour but
interesting if you're in the vicinity.
