Sample of a font I’m working on which has a print-block look.
Interesting promo sheet for a new documentary about the history of Burlesque.  Font choices are appropriate but uninspiring, but the overall look, textures and faux distressing are excellent.

And if you like the kind of designs and lettering you see on pulp novel titles, I recently designed a font based on the title style used on most of the John D. MacDonald novels of the 1950s called Suspicion, which particularly references the title design of the novel Area of Suspicion.
One of my interests is fonts based on designs from pulp novels and early comics.  Here’s a classic with a name that’s hard to resist - Captain Satan.  I think the rounded character forms in the name “satan” are particularly appealing.
Maybe not exciting, but these are examples of type designed for a company which produces parts for vintage cars.  They are recreating a classic tire design for the Premium Sportway tire and needed fonts to match the original imprinting on the rubber of the tires.  This is a sample of the design.
