Just an excuse to release something on the opening day of the WATCHMEN movie. It's a very rough negative linear rendition of the Futura Bold Condensed font that is used as the Watchmen title.
A friend of mine let me read his copy of the Watchmen graphic novel. An epic deconstruction of the superhero genre with multi-threaded storylines and deep allegorical character analysis. A masterful work of sequential art and storytelling. This font hardly does it any justice. Hopefully the movie will do that. Ironically, I related to the character Ozymandias.
Rendered at 1:2 scale. LC has alternating spacing. Dash creates linear spaces.
