  1. cant really understand “Fig. 1.6″…

  2. This is a great typeface to both draw and signwrite. I taught signwork for 7 years at hammersmith & west london college and OHV was the main typeface used until my students had the ability to move onto more adveturous types. In this case, the C (No.4) is wrong; the top and bottom curves should be worked to a much larger radius from the centre line forward and cut off at the H line.
