Inktraps in Serif Designs

Wiewauters's picture

I was wondering if extreme inktraps, like the ones you find in certain designs like Amplitude of Bell Centennial, sometimes become a design element in serif typefaces. Does anybody know any typefaces which have them? Farnham has them to a certain extent, do you know of any others.

Eason's serif connections could be considered ink traps.
