    Stencil-Gothic — designed and registered at the US-patent office in 1885 by John West of Brooklyn, New York — is the first known typeface that incorporates the stylistic feature of interrupted strokes in order to evoke the impression of stencil lettering. Fascinated by the odd stylistic mixture found in its lettershapes Johannes Lang and Ellmer Stefan set out to digitize Stencil-Gothic in spring 2014. The digital version remains caps-only — yet its character set was extended for contemporary needs and covers the most common languages using the latin alphabet. Stencil-Gothic is now available as a cross-platform compatible OpenType font as well as all common webfont formats for self-hosting.
