Could someone let me know why symmetrical letters (A, V, etc.) don't have a perfect symmetrical form. Is there a particular reason why the angles and thickness of the two strokes in each letter vary?
I've attached references for this. The blue filled part represents the original letter, and the red outlined form is the flipped version.
Also is it wrong for the letters to have a perfectly symmetrical form?
