Typographic Countdown — 24 Days ’til the New Year

H appears to have its earliest recorded origins in Egypt, where the character depicted a fence or wall. Its form hasn’t changed much through the years, though its sound, and whether it’s silent or spoken, has seen plenty of debate. In Spanish, H is for looks only.

DeVinne by Gustav Schroeder renders H in a sharp, rationalized manner. Looking for something technically up-to-speed with optical sizes in the same style? Try Nick Shinn’s Scotch Modern.

    *nearly* too much temptation.
