The unity and struggle of opposites by Valery Golyzhnikov

Bramb is an experimental combination of opposites. Among its features, we list its wideness for capitals and narrowness for linear proportions, sharp projections, ruptures of shape and rounding of corners, horizontal and vertical cuts of inclined strokes, sharp and soft structural strokes. The author allowed himself much but was satisfied with the result of the experiment.
