[BKARTS] Highway Sign Fonts in NYTimes



There's an interesting article and slide show in today's NYTimes about how they have revised the font used on highway signs to make them more readable from a distance and at night.  It looks as though it will be in tomorrow's magazine section.  A design firm created the Clearview font for this purpose.

Enjoy, especially the slide show.
