    From Isoletters:

    This sign uses a typeface I hadn’t ever seen in use before: Edit by Margo Chase (1958–2017). It is similar to FF You Can Read Me (by @SarkyType, released in 1995), but less extreme: In FF You Can Read Me, ‘o’ is a quarter of a circle. In Edit, just one quarter was cut out.

    De Platanen (“The plane trees”) is a building on Weerdjesstraat in Arnhem, the Netherlands. It was built by Geurst & Schulze in 1994–1998. Edit was released in 1997. Assuming that the sign is as old as the building, this might qualify as an early use.
