Bad Gong Font Preview

I quite often visit the forum. There was a discussion about fonts that look like written in chalk. Finally, a forum member interjected that the typical chalk font is a font whose name is Gong from the days of metal type. Another forum member then asked if it now admit of this document, a digitized version, and as it turned out, there has been none. The font was designed by Carl (Carlos) Wilkow (even after Kandler Wilckow) designed in the 1940s and 1945, for the first time at the North German type foundry GmbH in Berlin (and loud Luc Devroye in John Wagner in Ingolstadt) for the first time poured, and gained until the 1960s in commercial printing very popular, so it was available in almost every commercial web printing. However, the existing letters are often heavily squeezed. High time for a digital rescue before the last casts end up in the finished box.

This was the connection for me to strive for the digitization of this font. Other forums members have contributed this some pictures of that font too, including a mapping from the known type specimen book "Kandler", all of which are significantly raise pictures showed that they were all printed by pretty worn letters. Nevertheless, I have tried to create these pictures once a reasonably usable character set. And even though I do not particularly love about Auto Trace-generated funds, to put it nicely express, I created this font on the fly so. This of course means that the individual forms are not particularly clean. Ok, this is only a first and really respected as a temporary attempt to revive the font. And since I have this font so now once already created, I would like these also offer a freeware version here.
