Created by Jim Parkinson, Amboy is a display sans font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Parkinson Type Design.

Amboy is a two-font household: Amboy Inline and Amboy Black. Amboy Black is a current addition. It can be used alone, but it is carefully customized to fit behind the Inline font to include color to the inline. There are alternate characters: A, M & & N in the caps and lowercase crucial positions.

Amboy is a square gothic design typical of Mid-20th Century Showcard Lettering. A lettering genre referred to as "Gaspipe." Signs samples comparable to this still exist on buildings in my house town, Oakland, California. I have actually designed over a half dozen variations of this kind for many years. Including Golden Gate Initials, Matinee, Motel, Hotel and Fresno.

This font was created in 2001 by Jim Parkinson, and has because been revitalized, boosted, and re-released.
