Inktraps in Serif Designs
0

I was wondering if extreme inktraps, like the ones you find in certain designs like Amplitude of Bell Centennial, sometimes become a design element in serif typefaces. Does anybody know any typefaces which have them? Farnham has them to a certain extent, do you know of any others.

Exchange by Tobias Frere-Jones. And then there is this other one with enormous ink traps - Olga: http://www.tdc.org/news/2007Results/Olga.html

Eason's serif connections could be considered ink traps.

Christian Robertson's under construction Serif Beta contains robust ink traps in the Caption weight.
