Balto

Balto is a gothic sans-serif typeface designed by Tal Leming and released by Type Supply in 2013. The design was inspired by American gothics such as Franklin Gothic and Trade Gothic. The development of Balto spanned six years and to show for that there are an incredible eight weights available with matching italics. This probably makes Balto the most versatile font available in the American gothic style.
