Pacific Clipper Medium Oblique (Spiece Graphics)

About Spiece Graphics
Jim Spiece enjoys resurrecting old typefaces. And finding a complete set of characters can often be a challenging task. It takes him down into the musty basements of public libraries and out into the world of flea markets and hole-in-the-wall bookstores. After careful scanning and hand-outlining, he must occasionally dig deeper for a missing punctuation mark or double f-ligature. Jim chuckles, 'These are all minor inconveniences when you consider you've brought these faces back from obscurity and found them new homes. Besides, it's fun. In one sense, my own designs are a lot easier because they never had a previous life!' You can check out Jim's revival of the Bernhard Gothic SG Family offered by FontHaus or his popular ITC Blair Family.

About this font
Pacific Clipper has its roots in an old 1930s showcard lettering style. An extra bold version of this sign painter’s relic is shown in Carl Holmes' wonderful book on lettering.

It may be described as what happens when Rudolf Koch's Kabel Heavy meets ATF's Novel Gothic.

Also known as Sam’s Tune, Pacific Clipper’s noteworthy features include wedged crossbars in the capital A, E, F, and H. Overcurving is present in the capital B, D, P, and R while vertical strokes in the lowercase b, d, h, k, l, and t are chopped off obliquely. Figures in Pacific Clipper are also refreshingly different, particularly the number 4. This lettering favorite turned retro typeface has been extended to include a variety of weights.
