Zelek bold and Zelek boldline (designed by Bronislaw Zelek) used to be part of the old Mecanorma catalogue (at least they appeared in the 70's one) but, unfortunately, they have never been digitized so far.

 

Have these font been renamed and commercialized by another foundry ?

Or maybe a fan made his own version of these ?

I've been looking for these fonts (or look-a-like ones) for mad years !

 

Many thanks for your help !

Mecanorma had one called Glowworm. If the reflections are removed it appears to be the same design.

Really appreciated, thank you :-ty

However, there are a few differences between these two fonts (glowworm like - Zelek).

Wouldn't be possible that one of Pilo's member could digitize these Zelek fonts from an old mecanorma catalogue (and with the help of the existing Glowworm like made by DickPape?) This would be great since no typographic company has shown its in interest in digitizing this font so far...

 

This would be more than highly appreciated !

 

This is what I found on the Internet if this can help...

Hi DickPape,

 

What do you mean by "a copy of the characters" ?

As a matter of fact, these are the only documents I could find regarding zelek fonts (+ what has been posted on the 1st post of the topic).

 

Hope this can help you...

 

Kindest regards

By the way...

 

Does anyone have an old Mecanorma catalogue and willing enough to scan the whole Zelek family in HQ (or at least the zelek bold and black versions)? This could be very very helpful :-Y

Dick, would it be possible for you to make anything out of the Zelda I posted? I was hoping that you can do your magic even with a low res image.

 

It would take me time if I do this. I also promised myself not to do a font if I can't get a good look at the design. But Zelda/Zelek shadline is just too pretty...
