Designed by André Gürtler in 1967
Egyptian 505 is a slab serif style family; during the 19th Century, slab serif types were commonly referred to as "Egyptian"-style faces. Gürtler designed Egyptian 505 in the strain of Adrian Frutiger's famous Egyptienne typeface; Gürtler and Frutiger worked together on many occasions during their careers.
The type family is well suited for many uses, including magazines, brochures, text composition, business cards, newspaper advertising, book jackets, slides, menus, slides, posters, manuals and catalogues.
Egyptian 505 won the first Visual Graphics Corporation (VGC) type competition."
