Here is a slender S from the new condensed gothic set. I’m always surprised at the little touches you can see in these hyper condensed letterforms when you blow them up. The stroke thins out just barely at the top and bottom. There are a lot of irregularities in this block,look at the right edge of the center part of the letter and how it bulges and seems to flatten out. The end of the stroke on the top also looks to be a bit uneven. This guy has a lovely red tint in its face, perhaps leftovers from a life of promoting “SALES!” and “DEALS!”
