Three versions of the font designed by Robert Evans, choose yours ;)
Thank you to mrodi for correctly identifying this as our TFSaginaw.
There is a showing of our authentic TFSaginaw Bold, generated from our Treacyfaces typesampler, at http://www.treacyfaces.com/TFSaginawBold_TREACYFACES.jpg
If mrodi or someone else can help me post it where “No sample available” appears at the start of this thread, I’d be grateful.
Headliners' Bob Evans created the ruling pen script design about 1960 as an outgrowth of handlettered ad and magazine headlines he was doing. In the 1960s, he named it Laramie (not the like-named design you see elsewhere in this thread!).
In 1992, before Treacyfaces permanently assumed the Headliners library under contract in 1995, Mr Evans changed the design name to Saginaw, for reasons that were important to him as designer and custodian of the design for about 32 years.
In 1995, since the lettering had for quite a while been the Headliners logo font, I combined it with our Treacyfaces mark to create the Treacyfaces/Headliners design that our customers have seen on Treacyfaces catalogs and at treacyfaces.com since 1996.
After 1995, I went on to personally draw many more varieties of TFSaginaw, and far beyond the original Light, Medium and Bold, there are now 12 varieties. All can be seen and licensed at treacyfaces.com.
For those here that truly care about nuance and true quality, and not simply where your next free fonts are coming from, you might find it interesting and helpful to scrutinize our authentic TFSaginaw: how it truly contains Bob’s intended ruling pen script design, not the rubbery blobbiness of the others cited in this thread.
Thanks again, mrodi. And thanks to everyone here at WTF for listening and allowing me to update your knowledge base regarding TFSaginaw.
All the best,
President & Director of Typography
