This project is a type specimen designed to showcase and celebrate the main features of the font “Narkis Block”. Designed by Zvi Narkis in 1958, this font is characterised by close attention to legibility in all versions. In the Hebrew language several letters share great visual similarity: 

ב-כ, ג-נ, ד-ר, ה-ח

Therefore, it was important to differentiate each letter by giving it a distinctive shape that is both unique yet based off the same elements. The following compositions accentuate these characteristics by exhibiting the way in which a simple tweak creates a completely different letter/outcome.
