FF Ernestine’s delicate finish and casual, wide stance are accentuated by Directors Gothic’s plain (and compact) nature. The American sans captures a classic ad-lettering style, with tightly controlled strokes, and a subtle human touch. The face comes in an astonishing 90 styles, each of the five sets growing incrementally wider, by the numbers.
Placed in proximity to the spare all-caps line of Directors Gothic, FF Ernestine’s texture is nothing short of luxurious.
That’s it. Great Pairs continues here Wednesday.
