Hi Typophiles!
Here is a free coloring page promoting my kickstarter book:

----------

A-holes was inspired by the amusing double entendre of the phrase "A-holes"—the technical term for the negative space in a letter A (this space is actually called the "counter"). Letters' negative space might seem irrelevant, but it determines a lot about the character of a font. As the book shows, the shape of a hole can tell you if a font is a serif or sans serif, and it can tell you where elements like the stroke, crossbar or bowl are located. Holes are like a traceable pattern, giving you clues about a typeface without seeing it.

AD Ligature

Greetings,

A colleague of mine is working on a book of Thoreau's letters and a question was raised as to whether we could use an AD ligature (as in A.D. or Anno Domini) in the text. I had never seen one and was curious to find out more about it.

A quick search revealed this Flickr photo of the ligature on a bell in Boston. The quality of the photograph is terrible and that's all I was able to find.

I'm hoping someone here is more familiar with this ligature and can point me to some other examples of it.

Just wondering if there is any technical protocol for creating a double or single story of each character? I initially thought sans serif leaned towards single story characters and vice versa (serif typefaces were typically two story) but I see this isn't mandatory.

According to the ever-correct Wikipedia, there is no technical right or wrong.

Does anyone have any recommendations or preferences when you create these letters in a new typeface?
