National Park Sign Font

April 8, 2012 Comments Off on National Park Sign Font

A little bit of a sneak peak of tomorrow’s post for all  you typophiles out there. I visited  Shenandoah National Park and one of my favorite things when I visit is the font they use(d) on the signs! The National Park Service actually has  official fonts, currently NPS  Rawlinson and Frutiger, however this is a much older style font used in the early days of the park, I believe  circa 1930’s.
