Tsukushi Old Gothic B

筑紫オールドゴシック B

About fonts

This is a completely new typeface designed with the image of the Gothic typeface that existed in the era of metal type. One of the characteristics of the Tsukushi typeface is the large amount of information that the characters contain. This typeface contains the largest amount of information of all the Tsukushi typefaces, and the letters themselves speak eloquently.
The organic intonation in both the vertical and horizontal strokes, and the tight bosom, give it the most elegance among Gothic fonts. The difference from other typefaces is obvious just by the combination of words using only kanji.
