good start...it seems like youve reach the extremum of abstraction. Now try to tone it down and gets some legibility going. Also I find it easier to do hamburgefonstiv rather than working on all at once. Once I get a unified system for the "ham.." the rest will feel as a cohesive family.

hi there, the holocaust is a preface type and is not ment for body copy.in terms of legibility, i m not too worried about it as the holocaust is an abstraction type. but i appreciate your comments though.
tks and cheers.
