An interesting time capsule of typography, arkitekton has scanned a series of Sri Lankan Dinamina newspapers covering the 1969 lunar landing.
Monolinear display type, condensed and rounded display typefaces, “italic” slanted subheads, and the use of red and light blue ink in headlines, to create more differentiation. This looks to be the standard Monotype Sinhalese design.
(I need more time to study the Linotype and Monotype side-by-side to be sure! Let me know if you know!)
