Archived entries for Poster Gothic
The Poster Gothic series was cut in multiple widths in both solid and outline versions. When the solid and outline of the same width were cut from the same pantograph setup the characters could be printed to align for two-color work.
The Poster Gothic Series, as manufactured by Hamilton Manufacturing Company, was cut in multiple widths in solid face and outline – like the Republic Gothic Series posted on 02/19/10 – allowing for two-color (or three, depending on the transparency of the inks) work.
6 line Poster Gothic No. 738 – Class R
