    Sign outside the U.S. Gas station in Dillsburg, PA with such a charming stack of 1970s display faces I’m more than willing to overlook the redundancy of “ATM Machine”.

    The most important letters get a fancy Onyx treatment, with “MACHINE” boasting such wonderful Lack of Typographic Inspiration that I laughed walking by before snapping a photo. “Available Inside” is dressed in the always-classy ITC Tiffany.

    Something is really sweet about this sign’s use of urbane, high-contrast serifs to dress up a pretty mundane message, even if its more recent unfashionability has relegated it to be stuck around the corner out of view.
