If not I’ll meet you on the Carrizo Plain

If you’re anywhere in Southern California right now, drop everything and road trip out to the Carrizo Plain. The superbloom from the winter rains is indeed once-in-a-lifetime and you owe it to yourself to discover your inner Ferdinand.

Rugby font in the wild – part 9

I certainly never expected to see the font here. Oddly enough, I was reading Chaykin’s American Flagg series when it was first released in the mid-80s, so I probably first encountered the font here years before I ever saw a Spacemen 3 record.
