Xray Spex – 258 glyphs, 4 weights.

Penetrating and jauntily skewed inline sans inspired by a dollar store header card packaging “Xray Spex”.

Admit it, we all wanted these things…

X-Ray Specs are one of the giants of comic back page advertising novelties. They contained an actual feather sandwiched between two thin layers of cardboard with holes punched in both. When you view something through these small apertures, the vanes of the feather diffract the light and create two slightly offset images that produce the illusion of an X-Ray.

The dubious ads always featured illustrations that subtilely and luridly suggested you could actually see through clothing.

Harold von Braunhut, inventor of the Amazing Sea-Monkeys, is credited with their development.
