Notable Use

I was looking at the excellent Chris’s Acorns site the other day, when I found another archetypal use of Christine Lord’s Oxford typeface on a BBC Micro peripheral:

Judging by the LEDs, it also doubles as a light show

This is precisely the sort of application for the Oxford face I remember seeing all over the place as a child. Whatever would the UK electronics industry have done without it?

I also noticed, for the "BBC MIDI" part, the Futura No. 2 D Demi Bold variant whose alphabet is seen here.

Yes, I found that interesting too: Demi Bold wasn't used that often.
