Axel, hi. I really like this font. It's so clean and crisp. Well Done. :)

There's only one thing that's bothering me a little. With minimal Brick Stacking, you can get the middle bar of E (and other characters) exactly in the center as in the sample poster. It can be done so:

lovely work!

Thalamic, in fact, the middle bar of E and others are center(A=B)...but yes there are something that are not center, the side peaks of C,D,E.. wich are a little down from center.I prefer not to go to a perfect geometric way adding a little bit of "personality" like in the original... I think that optically works better than if was exactly in the middle center.
But... good foresight, I much appreciated what you told me :)
Sometimes is hard to explain what I´m thinking in a language that its not my own... :(

But you had a good foresight

I am a longtime fan of those Jerome Roth posters. Nice interpretation!

Thanks Caseycastille... this was done with all the respect to Jerome Roth who begin to work at the WPA poster division at age 16...and died in July of the present year at age 90.

Jerome H. Roth (Poster signed Rothstein)was my late husband. He told me he designed the type specifically for this poster. He would have been happy to see it being utilized
