Red letter day

      For students of 1960's typography and typefaces this little plaque high up on a Cambridgeshire wall has all of the desirable elements. Well perhaps not the incised sans at the top but the word VILLA and 1885 certainly have.
      Even the diamond shaped full point, cunningly placed to compensate for the lack of centring, does the business too.
      All in all we like it, apart from the silicon around the top and sides but we're being picky. It definitely deserves better than that.
