Reverse + Regular Italics [at the same time]

Hi all,

At Face Forward I saw Jo De Baerdemaeker’s excellent presentation on reverse italics, during which he showed a slide containing an example of a cross between a regular and a reverse italic at once, seen in the image below. 

I realised also that the amazing Pyte Foundry most recent release, Kink A, follows a similar
, albeit opposite(?), style. I was wondering where I could find more information about this type of italic and figured this would be the place to ask. Does anyone have any more examples or knowledge on the subject?

    But the example she shows is bent the other way (i.e. backslant on top).
