B is for Bison
I’m not sure we have found the right typefaces yet, but like Alex i think this animal can be achieved using just two characters. I wonder if overprinting the head at a lower height, so that one of the eyes lines up with the larger hole in the other letter could work? This would create more of a shoulder behind, which is a strong feature of the bison.
In the 1800’s hunting, changes in land use and government policies brought the bison near to extinction. In the early 1800’s the bison populationnumbered in the tens of millions. By the end of that century there were fewer than 1,000 left. Today thanks to breeders and conservationists there are around 300,000 bison in North America.
