Really nice one! I think there’s legibility problems with the tail of the lc “a” (see “ab” & “av”) And, what about a bold version?
Thank you, Gregory.. I know that there are still some legibility problems.. ( And yes, there will be a bold version too.. Hopefully soon.. )
A bold would help sort out the ‘random-noise-pixel’ I see in the current rendering. I second the critique of the lowercase ‘a’ — its ligature pixel shimmies up the baseline and causes reading damage. Flatten that, and give yourself a proper terminal on the ‘g’ and you’ve got a nice readable pixel serif. but why nitpick when pixel fonts are quirky by nature. http://en2.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quirinus
Thank you, Christopher.. A tribute to ‘Quirinus’.. ( ‘Quirinus’ also is a typeface, created more than 50 years ago, by Aldo Novarese / Nebiolo type foundry, Italy.. )
Hi David, a google image search for ‘quirinus’ turned up this diagram http://www.xs4all.nl/~huygensf/pics/blankverd.gif and this fascinating page: http://www.xs4all.nl/~huygensf/blankenburg.html (this is Dutch, right? I can’t read it but the graphic is awesome.) http://www.fontsearchengine.com/Quirinus-Bold.htm is this your inspiration? cause I like yours better. p.s. Is there a full face to accompany your typophile picture ‘D’?
Nice.. No, the inspiration for mine was the original ( non digital ) version, from Nebiolo.. ( I dont really like the bolder, digital Adobe one.. ) Is there a full face to accompany your typophile picture ‘D’?.. Not yet..
