Mission Script, the Mission’s own script

If you can’t already tell, I’m a huge fan of local typographer James T. Edmondson and his contributions to the world of letters. Well, James has done it again. Mission Script is a tribute of the hand-painted signage of the liquor stores, taquerias, doughnut shops, and bodegas of our neighborhood, and it’s the first typeface to come out of Lost Type’s Mission Collection.

You can download Mission Script (and a bunch of other snazzy typefaces) over at Lost Type. And do consider making a contribution if you’re really going to use it.

    Good looking “hand painted” inspired type here… but not really Mission influenced or inspired much.
    This guy holds down liquor store signs pretty well in the mission:


    Another good one:

    Mission Thrift

    This guy does window splashes and is pretty prominent…
