A fun little font with a second-hand history. The basic idea came from my recollection of a rough sketch.* The handprints are combined with a knockoff version of Morris Fuller Benton’s classic Hobo font. Besides the hands, it differs from regular Hobo in that it is much bolder and has descending lowercase letters.
Includes caps, lowercase, numbers, punctuation, ligatures, international characters, and several pairs of black handprints.
*A proposal for a “hands on” event, the sketch came from a brainstorming session of the “Young Turks Committee” at The Arts Center of the Capital Region, which included Lisa Roche, Donna Brunig, and others.
