One of Typography’s Great Mysteries Solved.

So pretty much every piece of a character has a name. There’s counters, serifs, cross bars, descenders…but what about that missing space in a stencil-like font?

Well, it now has a name. It’s called a “pylon.”

Although I wonder if this is supposed to be a joke. The endorsements aren’t very…uh…endors-y…and it could be considered a joke. However, I think that this could catch on whether they intend it to or not.

All in all, though, an interesting read and something to let your brain wrap around.
