Hello all,
Is there a name given to fonts that appear weighted to the bottom line? By this i mean say the E or H or R have their midsection lowered closer to the bottom that the top.....

Is this known as a particular style?

Many thanks,
Andrew

I am familiar with the term low-waisted ( or high-waisted) for type that looks as you describe. For example, the first Neutraface font was low-waisted, with the crossbar low on the E, and the R counter using more than half the height. Many Art Deco or Art Nouveau styles are either high-waisted, or low-waisted.

Is that what you mean?
