One of the many swashy Bookman variants from the 1960s somehow survived into the present. This generic shopping bag features a particularly chewed up rendition of unknown origin, overexposed, (too) tightly spaced, with undefined details, and questionable terminal swash forms for r and s. About the only thing that reveals that this is not a decades-old artifact is the recycling info set in Arial. Spotted in New York in 2015.
