Hope that I am transliterating this correctly. The inherent “a” vowels typically turn into an “o” sound in Bangla, so I’m never quite sure. In any case, I LOVE this style of lettering. Rough, filled-in forms that use counters and negative space in a playful way. Absolutely love it. Can’t forget the spine, either! The same treatment, in all black, was used. Might be even more stunning!
