New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking into typefaces which have crossbars which overlap the rest of the letter, as seen in this example.
Is there a name for this particular feature?
Is there a period in history where this feature was seen a lot, and what (if any) was the reason behind it?
Is there any sort of reference to be found in ancient scripts / glyphs?
Any help much appreciated.
