Interesting how the typeface, Harbour (from www.T26.com) looks like it is made up of pen strokes with a thick nib. The terminals are somewhat similar to Matrix II
Typeface Archer, from Hoefler & Frere-Jones from typography.com has large variation between it’s capitals (which are slab-serif) and it’s lowercase. Describing the letter forms with what seems to represent a bezier curve is an interesting way to show the face.
Similar to Matrix II, I am drawn to this face becase of the subtle personality that exists in what is otherwise a very regulated envionment. The points of the letters is a great contrast to the symmetry of the rest of the strokes; the line weight does not *appear* to change within each letter—yet tiny, inpercievable changes (if not viewd closely) add up to perfect balance.

Matrix II, created by Licko at Emigre, seems to work best as display type—a chance to really appreciate the difference of each letter form in relationship to the others, especially the height of the capital A compared to the other capitals (see bright green portion of second image). The sharpness of the letters offers a lot of potential personality in the setting in what is otherwise a very upright, modulated face.
