[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. VI-6] ClEarviEw

Interesting title, you probably guess. Well, there has been something that has bothered (or intrigued) me a little bit about some of the road signs that I see going to and from Chicago. I know that I wrote a blog post similar to this idea last year, but it bears repeating.
And it stems from my obsession with fonts!

Consider this sign:

Versus this one.

The former is in Clearview, but the smaller words are in Highway Gothic.

Whereas the latter is entirely in Clearview.

How do I know?

The letter E in capital letters. In Highway Gothic, the letter E is shorter in the middle.

Yes, my obsession with fonts…


Today is the sixth day of the sixth round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R.

Green Bay/St. Norbert: 28 days

Minneapolis: 35 days
