There’s a great little Cafe in NoHo called “Cafe Angelique”, which is a good spot to duck away from the madness of the european discount shopping hordes on Broadway. While you’re there, grab an espresso and enjoy the rustic parisian vibe, that feels quite a bit more authentic than the “Le Pain” across the street.
Take a look right above the condiment bar, and you’ll find this great soda crate, living it’s second life as a shelf for stuff. I just can’t get enough of the all-caps condensed gothic used here. The rounded corners give it a slightly softer characteristic.
Again, as with many of these artifacts, it’s impossible to know if these were actual typefaces, or hand interpretations of a popular gothic or sans. This would be a font that i’d buy in a heartbeat.
