This sign from a small town in the Okanogan demonstrates a unique blend of pen-made Gothic with the sensibility of Blondie and Dagwood. Note how the sign maker became reflective and doubtful at the end, forming a k with a completely different serif, lifted no doubt from a manuscript in the Newberry Library. Consistency is one of the greatest challenges of the letter arts: how exactly DO you get to the end of a sentence in the same style you began? Here the work is unified by soothing wood grain which flows from the hard-edged and somewhat brutal content of the words into the mind of Blondie as she dreams of being wak-ed into beauty.
