    The opener page is almost exclusively set in Hobeaux Black, stacked and justified, with a rainbow gradient. Parentheses and quotes/apostrophes are taken from lighter weights of the 5-style family.

    Just in time for OH no Type Co.’s first anniversary, founder James T. Edmondson’s “dreams are coming true, thanks to the brave designers at @NYMag.” The Culture Pages of New York’s Fall Preview issue 2016 are a celebration of his Hobeaux.

    The section titles are in gigantic Hobeaux Black, cropped and partly superimposed, sometimes rotated. The colored numbers and the authors’ names feature the Bold weight.

    Hobeaux drop cap! Fun fact: “Loser” was released in 1993, just like Whale’s “Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe”.

      Hobo type sucks, even if used ironically.

      ^^^ Ahh, yes, but Hobeaux, now that’s a sweet looking typeface.
