The Letter M

From left to right: Clarendon, Univers, and Futura

Clarendon - Highlighted to display the serifs.
Universe - Given illustrated bones to display the stem, and stroke.
Futura - Has illustrated bends to point out the apex.

Post Crit:

The most successful of these pieces by far was my Clarendon representation which best visually complimented the font. This particular piece lacks a finished quality though which I will be working on to improve.

This time around I focused too much on anatomy and not enough on the beauty and form of the font itself and what it can do with it alone.
