The reversed version of AT Imagiro for the Reversecomp (2nd entry).
This should be printed on paper and cut according to symmetry axis to achieve the result as in the samples.
from the category of 'also ran'
Only interesting in theory; the practical application leaves a lot to be desired. Incomplete as well. Only sharing now because vacations are over. Back to work from tomorrow moring. Won't really have time to work on this in any meaningful way anymore. Unless inspiration strikes out of somewhere and I am able to stay awake past my bedtime.
Every glyph has a counter rotated glyph or has self rotational symmetry—all except the c, which remains a loner loser.

Full disclosure: This fs was started before there was such a thing as Reverse competition.
Side story on the making: This fontstruction is deceptively simple. It was quite a challenge to execute. Just because the strokes seem flowing doesn't mean they are all placed in the logical grid block. The rounded-off ends forced the bricks to be placed in any of the 8 adjoining blocks and nudged into place. Consequently, due to the nature of nudge only moving as much as half a block in any direction, some compromises had to be made in the shapes.
Out of 111 bricks used, only ten are from existing bricks; all the rest are custom bricks. There would have been a lot more bricks if most weren't rotated or flipped.
3 bricks tall.
Entry for the Reversecomp. It's based on the theme of counterclockwise (anticlockwise) direction that is represented by an arrow. Also, Esrever is Reverse written backwards.
Bevel/chisel effect using connecting bricks.
Glyphs B,K,R,S,X,Z,k,s,x,z,2,3,5,7,8 miss cuts because of nudging space limitations.
This is not just another tile set that simply uses a wider variety of brick in each glyph. I added "twists". I wonder how long before someone notices ;)
This font is based off the "ABC Sunday Night Movie" title from the 1970's, as well as WPIX-TV New York's movie titles from the 1970's.
I've been wanting to do this kind of font for ages, think of it as a soft square or a hard circle. Since it's been so long, I can't really remember the exact source of inspiration, but I do remember it had something to do with kix and his work.
The ability to kern now has obviously made the spacing better than it would have been otherwise. Thanks, Rob.
Just keep coming back to these shapes...
Something between AT Schengbers and AT Thinnetry with some more experimental shapes. Spacing can be perfected of course.
