Barb was created by Gareth Hague and published by Alias. Barb contains 2 designs and family package options. p > Barb isn't made from including gaps to an existing design, however by constructing letters from different graphic elements. This separation of the letters into parts allows fascinating and unusual connecting devices.

This is especially noteworthy in the scythe-shape of the curved characters to triangle serifs, and the pointed connector-shapes in the A, H and N. The B, P and R combine the two. In this way letters are differentiated in surprising and meaningful ways, and an even colour is achieved in between letters.

As with other stencil types there is some abstraction, however it isn't the intent with Barb of deconstructing letters, more having a good time with illustration, and constructing, however in a different method.
