Back to back A’s this week, just because I love them so much! This guy is solid, meaty and wonderfully angular. I love the uneven stroke weight from one side of the letter to another. This guy has been cut into, as many A’s are, for kerning. The serifs on the bottom are so wide that the space between them is just a hairline, an interestingly delicate detail in what is a bold and in your face style.
