This might be the start of something awesome
First, of hopefully a series of deviations, that are specimen of typefaces. I hope to do this alphabetically, the next one logically being B, and create a series of specimen for some amazing typefaces. Today starts with the typeface Abraham Lincoln
I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, while adding stylistic elements coming from 19th century graphics. Additionally I decided to go with a $ bill inspired palette. Done entirely in Adobe Illustrator, 100% again
Not sure if I will create all of the series entirely like this, hopefully I will find different styles to work with, as given by each typeface's character, so there might be some experiments coming as well
About the typeface:
"Inspired by the proportions of the 16th President of the USA, and advertisements/playbills of the 1800s, Abraham Lincoln is a humanistic display face with moderate contrast and sturdy serifs."
