Climb on up and see things from another angle! The oblique versions of the Sideshow™ fonts are deliberately skewed at an angle which is a little extreme when the type is set horizontally. The reason for this is simply that the oblique text is designed to be set at an angle on your layout (optimum angles ranging from between 30 to 45 degrees left up to right).
For a more effective use of this angled text, try using an Illustration software program to set the text on a slight curve, and then angle this text on your layout as suggested above.
FULL CHARACTER SET
Each font in the Sideshow™ family has a full character set of 232+ letterforms, with all characters designed in the style of the font.
