I have always been charmed (flabbergasted?) with the eccentricities found in amateur lettering, especially those found in sign painting.

However, use of the lower case, which was added to fill out the set and offer even more bad variations,helps when you really want that childlike quality. Considering that this font is rather oddball, it has remained very popular since it was first issued. I’ve seen it used extensively on book covers and advertisements.
