Marne - Ultra Black French Clarendon

Ehague's picture

I wanted to post this for feedback before starting on the numerals and (possibly) a lowercase alphabet. It was somewhat difficult to balance a) blackness, b) extendedness, and c) a reversed stress, and some letterforms that might otherwise have shared a quasi-analogous construction, such as the X and Y, here do not.

I'm going for a more fun, ultra-black vibe than anything mannered or historically reverent.

Reminds me of this.

Nicely wacky. I think the upper counter of Q is pinched too narrow, and the Y may need some more differentiation from what could be a V.
