Design is often an exercise in deceit, imitating the look of letterpress, the look of serigraphy, or in this case, the lovely and old-fashioned look of something drawn by hand. The key is to cover your tracks-you don't want your poster looking like a woman with an Adam's apple. Fonts designed to imitate hand-lettering fool no one. Every E looks the same, every R looks the same; there's a sterility and order that undermines the intent. You want the look of hand-lettering? I've got a novel idea: Do it by hand! CORIANTON HALE
