About Nicholas
The headline version of Shinntype’s Goodchild, Nicholas is meticulously drawn and kerned for the classic “tight but not touching” style of 1970s hand-crafted display setting, with alternate characters to improve fit automatically. The overall effect is quite distinct from and superior to ‘optical’ kerning or mere negative tracking.
