I recently came across a version of Times/NR with a lowercase italic F that tilts backward a bit. I think it makes it more readable; and more appealing to look at than the forward-slanted F in the versions of TNR around today. Early- to mid-20th century German type used to have that; I once saw an obituary printed in Stempel Garamond, and it too had the italic F tilt back, for better legibility. Lange's Concorde is another case. Anyway, very nice. Share the joy.
