Type Metrics, I Love Typography-style

In the past, we've told you how great I Love Typography is. They demonstrate their greatness in their post on the inconspicuous metrics of characters in a font. Its filled with the kind of information and visual details that a thousand design textbooks have neglected to address. While fonts look completely gridded and geometric, they stealthily break all their own rules in order to create the visual harmony we call readability. ILT gives the inside look at this subtle art.

This is the kind of detailed view of characters that make me appreciate and admire the master of type design even more. Go forth and marvel.
