Mr. Eaves Sans and Modern from Emigre. Partners for Mrs. Eaves. Thank you Zuzana.
I know. I've been oogaling at them all day. Very lovely.
Note that it's *Mister* Eaves Sans and Modern.
Looks very cool. especially the italics.
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.)
Mrs. Eaves Sans Heavy Italic looks really nice

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.
It would be pretty interesting to see the typeface in use in a long text.
If you buy Emigre fonts they’re pretty good about sending printed specimens a few weeks after a big release.
