    The village hall in Elgol on the Isle of Skye, Scotland was completed in 1997. It also houses a shop, the post office, and a cafe. The wooden sign features raised letters from Bottleneck, a bottom-heavy display face designed by Tony Wenman for Letraset in 1972 (leaning heavily on Seymour Chwast’s Art Tone). I dig it when such fad faces pop up several decades after their best-before date. And on top of that in such an unexpected function, size, and medium!
