Countdown: k

Head for the hills. It’s more doom and gloom in the forecast, I’m afraid, as we’ve only completed the first half of our countdown to the end. Pausing to remember today is k, set in Laure Afchain’s Malaussène Translation Display, the assertive, topheavy display variant of Malaussène Translation.

Typographic Countdown — 21 Days ’til the New Year

Open broadly your left hand and spread your fingers wide. Looking at your palm you now see what was initially represented by the letter K. Upon closer inspection, I seem to have one too many fingers. K probably represented the right hand though, since ours is a reflection of the Phoenician alphabet, which read from right to left.
