Poor Mr Eaves is missing out on Mrs Eaves' Serifs.

I liked Mrs Eaves when it was just Mrs Eaves.
Couldn't they just fix the spacing instead of adding more stuff?

The Missus says: "The distinctly loose-fitting letter spacing of Mrs Eaves was applied also to the Sans version." I read that she is of the opinion that it's not a bug, it's a feature.

Well look at it yourself, and think about whether it's only loose, or if it's just not very good. I know what I think.
(Not that I can space better, but you know.)


(Disclaimer: I don't have Mrs Eaves – this is from a PDF sent to me by someone who does, and who I trust didn't mess with the metrics.)

I am not sure that class kerning works in MyFonts rendering, it could be just an absence of kerning ...

It would be pretty interesting to see the typeface in use in a long text. Is there a place we can get it? It's hard to appreciate the spacing or kerning with “Emigre typetease” or by the image they show on their website.

Pieter: Actually, three (though this third isn't for sale): Henderson Sans.

If you buy Emigre fonts they’re pretty good about sending printed specimens a few weeks after a big release.
