The first mixed lot I bought has a handful of letters in this outlined typeface. It’s the only outlined typeface I have, and I wish I had a complete set. It’s rather tiny, just over 1 in. tall. Blowing up tiny faces to this size reveals a lot of tiny inconsistencies, like the stroke weight, which varies wildly in various places. I love the serifs all lined up at the top, and how the left side of the stroke is thinner than the rest. It makes it more interesting than a very geometric, rigid letterform with a perfectly uniform stroke.
I also love the stacked router marks on the bottom of the shoulder. They make the block look so structural. I can’t imagine the skill required to knock out the counters in the serifs, to square off the top portion without harming the curve along the bottom.
