Sans serif "sci-fi" font in the style of Busorama/Marvin

51Mn6FV4nmL._SX298_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg
Found this in a charity shop, the book is from 1974 it seems. It shares some similarity with Marvin and Busorama but can't find anything beyond that that matches exactly. Any help appreciated!

Yeah, created in the early 70's by my father Roy Sprong.
Amazing. Would love to know more about how this came about. Do you have any documents or sketches? That would simply be fantastic!

There is a reference of this font called "Pinto Inline" in a Mecanorma catalog about 30 years ago.

See this related post: http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/forum/case/50304/

I think there is also a digital version of it by Rapitype(?) but I can't find any legitimate font acquisition link.

Looks like this is right! Klingspor Museum shows it as created by Roy Sprong: http://www.klingspor-museum.de/KlingsporKuenstler/Schriftdesigner/Sprong/RSprong.pdf

Thanks!
