A misprinted sans serif loosely based on Phillip Cavette’s 1999 font 4990810, but with re-drawn outlines, more distress marks, a neater vertical aspect and no baseline irregularity. Unlike its inspiration, Sans Culottes is a complete font which includes a lower case, accented characters and as many dingbats as you can shake a stick at.
The Ray Johnson font was inspired by the Father of Mail Art (or the Grandfather, depending on who you read). It is based on the block lettering style used by Ray to add the names of his correspondents to their bunny head portraits (the film ‘How to Draw a Bunny’ is a superb introduction). The font includes blank bunny heads and other Ray Johnson graphics as scalable vector images, and separate bitmap images are also provided as jpegs and gifs.
The Victor Moscoso font is based on the 1960s psychedelic poster lettering of the artist Victor Moscoso. The letterforms are derived from some of his most celebrated Neon Rose posters of the late sixties, in particular the quintessential Moby Grape ‘Neptune’s Notion’ of 1967.
Mandatory is a full small caps font developed from the typeface used for UK vehicle registration plates. There is improved stroke separation on the M and W which are pointed at the centre, and the tail of the Q is thinner and clearer.
Subway Ticker is based on a 5×7 grid, electronic display observed on a New York subway train in February 2005 en route to Coney Island. Also included is a ‘Grid’ variation of the font that is slightly more spaced out and based upon a more precise grid structure.
Roadway is based on U.S. highway lettering observed on New York street signs. Two weights of highway lettering would often be used on the same sign, condensed for the main name (Roadway uppercase) and a half-size regular superscript (Roadway lowercase) for ‘road’ or ’street’.
Lexia Readable was designed for maximum legibility, an attempt to capture the strength and clarity of Comic Sans without the comic book associations. Features like the non-symmetrical b and d, and the handwritten forms of a and g may help dyslexic readers. In 2013, many more accented characters were added to each weight to complete the Latin Extended-A range.
Magical Mystery Tour and the Outline Shadow version are fonts based on the lettering used for the Magical Mystery Tour record sleeve. I was looking at the Beatlelinks website and someone was searching for this font. I couldn’t find it either so I made these freebies.
