It is very encouraging to see the overcoming spirit
that some typedesigners declare through their investigation
in the overcoming of the typography.
The search of the extrapolated personal overcoming
to the overcoming in the typography.
I like this way (type-do).
Thanks to all. Happy near year.

Sorry ‘bout the Custom watermark, but I’m paranoid. All those days in the Corps will do that to a guy…

JF, that “Cicero”, is it Silica? A very nice -and even more rare- font.

Silica! How very clear on the page — rather legible and lovely methinks.

The best thing about Silica? No italics.
But it does have a fine gradation of weights, which allows the discerning typographer to implement a purer form of emphasis.

Yes, Silica from the Stone foundry pdf. I showed it with Underware Sauna as two examples (angular and round) of Black faces for my students yesterday. Along my FF Angie Black as a semi serif.

hopefully, Rotis don’t have any Black weight to fit on the subject :-)

So why is Silica’s sloped roman any better than an italic counterpart?

It doesn’t [even] have a sloped roman.

On the pdf speciman I have downloaded it does. We are talking about Silica from Stone type foundry, yes?

Not strictly “sketching” I guess, but something I
did last night during my final calligraphy class:

Ludovico

No guide lines used.

That’s pretty crazy, Phillip. I was listening to Death Cab when
I clicked to your post. Nice work.

Fun. Reminds me of those studies that track eye movements over a page / image.

The Vikings didn’t have horns in their helmet. That’s just a myth :-)

Hrant, I believe it is, and you’re right — it is sadly uncommon.
