Venis rhymes with "tennis "
Chank's attempt at a Roman Sans with
a Venetian influence. Venis is clean.
simple and elegant with nice contrast
Still it is not the most academically
correct font Chank's creative liberties
give Venis some unique qualities in its
characters that you'll especially notice
in the signature lowercase y.

at laôt the tale can be told
with Gobbler's organic crustiness to
create a terrible trio briefly known
as the Trainwrecks. But alas, their
name was already spoken for, and
the three trainwrecks (light, regular
and black) got a name change and
became what we now know as the
Shipwreck family. But the
Shipwrecks were a vulgar bunch,
and their child Sunshine ran off
to college to learn refinement.
Enhanced contrast showed a new
elegance, but the bad complex¬
ion was hard to overcome. So
The Venis family has an interesting
family tree. Old grandpa Kraftwek
begat his chosen son Liquorstore.
Liquorstore hooked up with Gobbler,
a saucy lass from the wrong side
of the train tracks. Liquor store's
rigid geometry danced

'After years of using my fonts.
Liquorstore had cemented itself as
one of my all-time favorite fonts ever
It seemed to work almost anywhere
I decided to put it." says Chank
But Liquorstore was too heavy to be a
text face, and one if its most alluring
attributes was the fact that the posi¬
tive space and the negative space
carry equal weight. Problem with that
is all the blacks and whites share
space evenly, like a checkerboard, then
it's impossible to change weight with¬
out changing the character of the font.
As a text font to complement
Liquorstore, Chank created the
Yearlings, using Liquorstore as the
base. He kept the emphasis on hori¬
zontal and vertical strokes (to make
for nice faxes!) and the round corners
