A lot of back-slant in this, no? Hildebrant.
Hildebrant, Yeah, there is. The ascenders begin to hook back to the left at the top and the descenders hook to the right. It just sort of came out in my doodles. I suppose this was part of my eﬀort to add some variety in the angles—I had noticed that many italic faces applied varying angles to each character, which harmonized nicely as a whole. Is it bothersome to you? For anyone interested, I am still working on this. Spacing has proven to be the most tedious (and not-so-fun) aspect of type design. Small caps are also in the works, but I’ll probably post another text sample when I ﬁnish the kerning pairs on the roman and italic. -Addison
