    A glorious hand-rendered version of Craig Mierop’s Ginger Snap C (C = with open letterforms and solid shadow) on the cover of the High School Drug Survey. Edited by W.S. Ferguson and W.L. Howard, this booklet was published by the Virginia Highway Research Council in July 1971. Not sure if the outlined caps for “High School” were patterned after a specific typeface, or freely drawn. The black text is set in Futura. The logo of the Highway Safety Division of Virginia uses all-lowercase Helvetica Italic.
