About this font family
Originally released as a Type 1 font, Amboy was refreshed (version2) and re-released as simple Open Type in 2013.
Amboy is an inlined square gothic style typical of Mid-20th Century Showcard Lettering. A lettering genre known as “Gaspipe.” Signage samples similar to this still exist on buildings in my home town, Oakland, California. I have designed over a half dozen variations of this form over the years.
