Sentimental Value

8 line Gothic Bold

There’s nothing particularly special about this letterform, simply three unadorned strokes. The crossbar (central, horizontal stroke) is thinner, and sits higher than mathematical center, giving an appearance of optical balance and equality. It’s the light color of the face, the prominent wood grain, the traces of red and black ink, the worn and rounded edges and scars from a life of hard work; it’s the warmth and humanity of this block that make it a cherished object.
