Type House and Foundries- Las Vegas

I thought this font was cool because it was made in the style of old Las Vegas signs. There are four faces within the house: castaway, jackpot, nugget, and fabulous. All styles resemble the typeface used to create the old signs on the Las Vegas strip. Las Vegas signs were revolutionary in their design; they had the most unique lettering of any other place at the time. I suppose it was the legacy left by this old lettering that drew me to the Las Vegas typeface. As soon as I saw it I was able to recognize what the house was influenced by.

In addition to the four faces, this house also include four illustrations, which I think is a cool addition .
