Yes, exactly. Not a big deal, but set off my OCD. Here’s how he would fix it.
So, he basically removed the bottom serif spacing on either side of the first A. But left it on the second A.
In the pic below, the original is on top and his fix below. Now, it's T IAN A's by his own reckoning...
The problem is that many capital letters are unforgiving with kerning. Several are extra wide and several grab huge estates of emptiness. The capital As are a problem because the wide bottom pushes other letters away while creating a big gap at the top between letters.
Below are examples of solutions that reduce that big space by means of:
- thicker vertical strokes
- leaning the letters as in italics
- putting serifs only on the sides with open spaces and removing the ones that are creating big white spaces
- using a more hand-scripting font that bows in wide bottoms or tops of letters (especially the A)
- big flourishes
- making wide letters narrower
Many of the font examples below need kerning fixes to the larger initial capital letter (the T) and the apostrophe-S.
The bottom one is my quick attempt at some of these fixes.
