Peghole Narrow Black

A wide version called for a narrow one. But narrowing a 3 block letter meant sacrificing the inner space. So Peghole Narrow automatically became Peghole Narrow Black. The hatches in the A, B, D, P and Q and several lowercase characters are no style gimmick but help to compensate for the lost inner space and increaselegibility. At least, that’s what I hope they do.
