STF_VAQUUM 67 - A MICR style font

The font is loosely based on a screenprint named "Vacuums"
taken from a 1967 portofolio work by Eduardo Paolozzi.

It's not an accurate 1:1 copy, instead I tried to make it slightly more proportional version inspired by the original work. The font is done in all caps with some glyph alternatives in the lowercase string in order to slightly more accurate mimic the original print text.
===========================================
The original print was most likely based on the "Westminster" typeface
that was designed by Leo Maggs and was inspired by the MICR (magnetic ink character recognition) system used on bank cheques.
Several other imitations of Westminster are out there, with most well known probably being the "Data 70" typeface.

Cheers

Wow! Impressive remake. I love these kinds of fonts.

The first two samples show an unbalanced A and V. I think you might consider changing them or adding some new ones. Good update.
