I just received the Fontshop newsletter and was assiduously reading it when I followed their links to the rival (ITC and Koch) versions of Kabel. As I peered at the Monotype/Koch version, I noticed with some disappointment that although the light, heavy, and black weights retain the bent terminal of the lower-case "A," the regular weight seems to have suffered the sad excision of the distinctive bend in favor of a colorless arc.
Am I over-examining the differences? Is there a story behind the design decision to differentiate the regular weight from its heavier and lighter neighbors?
