I was stunned when I first saw Jason Santa Maria's Beautiful Bitmaps submission... one would assume that this inky depiction is photoshopped, but it is not. Up close, you can see the reflection of the photo lights in the wet black. The talent and confidence to do this! So expertly done not only in execution, but also the concept behind this Baskerville b is interesting and thoughtful.
