A TrueType Font by S. John Ross
Cumberland Games & Diversions

This month's font is a return to stressed poster fonts, with an added "drop-shadow" effect designed to mimick some old advertisements I've been paging through for work. I drew a diagonal pattern by hand to create the look of the drops, and applied it through a bitmap filter to grayed-out versions of the poster type. To that I added my favorite cocktail of "acid washing" for type stressing, and the result is kinda nice, I think.

Double Slug is a full-keyboard (all caps) set, with a smattering of extended-set extras tossed in (like the cent symbol).
