About this font family
Modern digital typography pushes many designers to try and achieve visual perfection with their lettering.
In the days of wooden type, the premise was more in creating a font that “sold” the message (possibly, in part due to the lack of advanced tooling to achieve uniformity). In many styles of wood type (such as the one used as a model for Broadletter JNL), there are vast differences within the character design, weight and symmetry from letter to letter. This is now looked upon as “old fashioned” and “charming” - part of the appeal of this typeface.
