Another one of the lovely Antique blocks. One of my favorite things about this typeface is the arrows the counters make. They are so, well, bold, and graphic. The fact that the overall shape of the Y reflects the counter emphasizes that even more.
This block has a great disturbance in the grain on the top left. I’m not sure what could cause a distortion like that, but it’s certainly interesting. There is also a deep scribble mark on the right side, I’m not sure what it could say or what the intentions behind making it were.
