    Zeke Miller:

    A reader points out that President Barack Obama’s new typeface is Revolution Gothic, a style inspired by retro Cuban propaganda posters.

    Alexandra Lange:

    More striking to me than the name of the font, and even its tenuous Cuban connections, was how ugly this poster is.

    Roger Black:

    Obama shoulda used WPA type. If people don’t associate font with Cuba, the controversy is moot.
