Sort of, but not really. The type in the photo is hand-painted, so there are details and variations that the computer typeface lacks, like the little swooshes at the tail of the R and K (and the altogether different shape of the K which is too “retro” to pass muster in a “modern” typeface), different widths to Es, Rs, As and Ss with the same line height, and minor shifts in spacing and even brushstroke thickness which make the hand-painted type so much more appealing.

Fuck a font.

Real men use their two goddamn hands and a scanner.

That type is not handpainted, hawkeye. Take it in to photshop and magic wand that shit and paste it on top of each other- the like letters are exact.
