“For gritty reality and rust-belt appearance, Garage Gothic Regular was derived from numbered tickets given at city parking garages. ‘Irregular contours and rough alignments found on the lettering were retained in the font, albeit disciplined and restrained’ says driver and designer Tobias Frere-Jones. Tickets from other garages suggested a pair of heavier weights, which Frere-Jones formed into the Garage Gothic series.” — Font Bureau, 1992. Originally published by Font Bureau. Moved to Frere-Jones Type in 2020.
