A very nice surprise from the font department... I don't have any thing with what I think is "Letter Gothic". Am I correct? I'm getting a few different suggestions for the proper name of this font. I'm going to change the ribbon to get a better example to compare...

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane"...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
