    Used to good effect here imho and this is a lovely shot.

    Very good effect! Such great contrast. It's a printed page. This might as well be their letterhead and business card.

    Interestingly, the 'A' is Bold and the rest is Roman. Didn't even noticed until I typed it in the sampler.

    Slightly better than their webpage.

    Indeed. All storefronts might take a cue from this. Why don't we have things like this (that I have seen anyway) in the States? Cost? What's the material? Enamel on metal? Plastic? Anyway, it looks fantastic and yes the contrast makes it pop. Love it.

    The "EST. 1864" almost looks extra bold to me. Wonder why they chose to space it the way they did.

    That part is Bold Condensed.

    I beg to differ with you, Stewf. Look at the counters in the "8" for example.
  • Stephen Coles PRO 6y

    Ah, very strange. I was only looking at the 'S'. All sorts of differences here (1). That line may be from another model altogether.
