kerning help?
0

Hi, all-
Long-time Typophile visitor, first time forum poster :-)
I wonder if someone could take a look at these three words and tell me where I'm going wrong with the kerning?
Seems so simple, but between the upright L and the angled A and the rounded C and the upright K, etc etc- it's driving me bananas!

Many thanks!

The LA pair is a challenge, but I think you've been staring at it too long. ;^)

Try looking at it upside down. I think the BLA and CK work. Maybe the AC is a little loose. OT looks a little loose too. FURNITURE is all over the place. That's why I think you need to take a break. ;^)

I *definitely* need a break- you are right about that, and your other comments are right on, too! Maybe time for a sandwich.

A huge improvement- thank you, Jupiterboy. I kept getting bogged down with pairs, and not looking at the whole line.
