Background

Black Monday is a distressed version of Recovery, James Puckett’s revival of Eagle Bold. Black Monday has three complete characters sets in which every glyph has been distressed. Silas Dilworth created OpenType code that uses over a 1500 ligatures to cycle through the three character sets, preventing double letters from repeating and creating a more natural appearance .
