Fontlympic Decathlon: The Kern

Our Fontlympic Decathlon continues, but first, yesterday’s results:

Now on to today’s event. Kerns are adjustments in spacing made to specific pairs of letters. Some letter pairs, due to the nature of their forms, tend to crash or trap too much whitespace when juxtaposed. Look at the following samples and select the one that exhibits the best overall spacing, keeping in mind that sometimes the best kerns are the ones that don’t exist.

Polls close at midnight (Pacific). The next event in our Typographic Decathlon continues here tomorrow at 1pm.
