Unique Fonts In Our Print Shop Exhibit: Park Avenue

Among one of the most unique fonts that we have in our printing shop exhibition is “Park Avenue.” The font was created by R.E. Smith in 1933 for the American Type Founders. Around 1930, the ATF created angle body kinds with slanted sides. You require special spacing product for these angle body typefaces.

In this video, Howard explains the Park Avenue typeface, exactly how it varies from basic body fonts, as well as prints an instance.
