Kiss My Ligature.

New Zine out. Looks pretty rad. An anthology by the likes of White Lightning [seriously, what a little fabulon badass this chick is] and Marisa Meltzer [a super grrl with a mighty pen]. It's called First Kiss and it's merits are trumpeted by the likes of Lesley Arfin. And even though this thing's got street cred up the yang, is anyone else bothered by the type for the title? Is that supposed to be some cute clever thing where the F & I and K & I are just barely smooching? Or is it an oversight? Feels like it needs a ligature or some tracking or... something. Or maybe it's just sheer fucking genius and so beyond me, I can't even wrap my head around it. For the life of me I can't figure it out. I just threw together a quick little type study and ask if you guys could pick your fave. Don't get all uppity on the crappy kerning, y'all. It's just something I threw together.

The Original:

My Meddling:

a. Is the original setup. I vote for c. Just the right amount of tracking, combined with a cute little treatment on the K&I. Send me your thoughts, or even your own treatments. I'll post 'em!
