"Eaves happened to be John Baskervilles mistress. Gotta love a font with a story" via @James Rhymer  Heute bin ich auf die Mrs Eaves  gestoßen, entworfen von Zuzana Licko. Sie ist um 2002 entworfen worden und somit besteht in mir Unklarheit, ob sie noch zu den modernen gezählt werden kann oder nicht, jedoch finde ich sie trotzdem sehr schick. Ich finde sie hat einen ausgewogenen Strichstärkenkontrast und steht sehr gut. Es sind viele Schnitte und unglaublich süße Ornamente gegeben.
