East Village JNL is a art deco font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Jeff Levine Fonts.
The Federal Art Project division of the WPA (Works Progress Administration) employed numerous artists, musicians, actors and other creative sorts in a effort to help many survive the Great Depression of the 1930s.
One of the posters created by this project was for a “Card Party and Barter Benefit” with proceeds going toward the Nassau Art Teachers Benefit Fund - taking place at the Coca-Cola plant in Rockville Centre, New York.
East Village JNL was derived from this poster, and is available in both regular and oblique versions.
