      Ah, now Neutraface italic makes sense. I hadn’t seen this before. But I like Neutraface’s italic a lot more than this. The mixture of flat foot serifs and the w’s reverse curves doesn’t really cohere, does it?

      It’s using something like Kabel with single-storey 'a’s at bottom right, too.
