Delancey

Delancey is based on the gilded decals made famous by the transom windows of American tenements. A convenience of the industrial age, printed decals offered an inexpensive alternative to the skilled craft of window gilding, albeit a crude one: the forms on which Delancey is based are a distant corruption of a steadier signpainter's roman. (Their elegance was often further debauched by careless positioning, perhaps suggesting that the reason the traditionally fluid gestures of the 2, 5, and 7 were flattened was to make the digits easier to line up.) Capturing the insouciance of a set of 3-1/2" decals produced by the Duro Decal Company of Chicago, Illinois, the Delancey font preserves a vital part of the American streetscape.
