Give Me an A (or an M)

It is Commencement time. And time to say farewell to those chenille varsity letters that served as entre to those all-night beer parties and made the co-eds swoon. I won a letter once. A big “M” for McBurney. It didn’t make my life any better. It was for wrestling and the icon on the letter looked ape-like and demeaning (of apes). Yet in honor of this time of the year, here is an assortment of all-American letters – the most all-American typefaces there are.
