I just like the fractured effect of type on a corrugated surface.

some Buffalo pics

It's taken me a while, but I finally uploaded some pics I took in Buffalo when I was at Typecon.

I should have made the images smaller for the blog. Sorry 'bout that. To see the part that's chopped off... you know what to do.

4.1 m

Observed on Friday While trying to avoid a traffic jam.

(any idea why the .1 is smaller than the 4? is or was there some convention about making numbers after the decimal smaller?

they used templates to copy and lay out the letters on signs like this that were made one or two at a time before computer driven plotters came along. My theory is that the sign painter could find or didn't bother to look for the correct size of 1. maybe off the wall... but... oh, who cares :-)

So, when I see both in one place, I just wanna share it with the whole darned world

OK, maybe it's lettering.

What does one call the style employed here?

Aside from clumsy?

The SJC "logo"

It has a kind of 60's or 70's* (or maybe timeless>) drafting class/machine shop-moderne look. Does it have a name?

* The Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee was 1977, which effectively tells us when the sign was made.
