    It totally looks like WIKI LERKS. Typography fail.

    TYPEFACE = ‘font’.
    mdh is right in that pedantry.
    Hand lettering – we used to call “lettering style”. “Calligraphy” would do, too.
    However, half a pedantry point for spotting the stencil.

      Exactly. Considering the stencil of unknown origin, I’ll go with ‘lettering’. It might be a typeface if it’s a full set, otherwise it might be a one-off stencil. A conundrum wripped in a riddle and stuck in a pickle I tell ya.

      @Jasonclock, enjoy whatever you enjoy about this, but don’t claim someone trying to inform you is failing, while you win. Learning and winning go hand in hand. Also, fail.

    Then maybe it’s a calligraphy fail, but there is no “type” used in handwriting.

    A ‘font’ is literally a drawer full of lead type. it is not merely a style.

    • Jasonclock says:

      …and I never mentioned a ‘font’, I specifically said TYPEFACE. And a typeface can be drawn, sculpted, printed, pressed, painted, whatever you choose. Fail win fail win!

      PS. Besides, if you look carefully, this is spraypainted with a stencil, so it is not handwriting at all.
