Yes, and I don't think it's consistent either; after all, it spanned
several decades. It would probably be possible to find a suitable free
bold, compressed font that resembles it.

Turns out I have considered something suitable for binder spines before:

I also took a shot of my own shelf with some sample setting:

Of course Fjalla isn't the _same_ font as any of the binders, but the
binders aren't consistent either, so it might help someone get close to
the original look. You could also try horizontal scaling as desired (I
couldn't do that in GIMP?!)

Cough, cough... Can someone perhaps identify the font(s) used on the plastic CombBind spines of the manuals?
