And along the way I’ve picked up phases like: Sweet mother of pearl! Thanks Grant. Cheese and crackers, Randy! You’re welcome.
Now you’ve got me nervous that I called it the wrong thing. What I meant by it was the serif at the top of your lc d, n etc. The bracketing is the curving between the stem and the serif. Consider making it look less like you slapped a rounded box on the end and make it a little more organic. Pablo Honey, come back to Florida. From the Jerky Boys. Or Radiohead. Or both?? 77 was a good year for making babies brother snake.
Here’s some stuﬀ: - Among the UC, the “X” seems out of character. - Among the lc, the “g” could be more elegant, the “j” really needs some ﬂourish, the “t” seems like it could be diﬀerent, and the “x” is totally oﬀ. - Wassup with that lopsided dollar sign? Overall I think you’re doing a good job: pretty clean contours and great balance. hhp
thanks for all the comments! it seems like i’ll hafta make two versions of this one: one version to stay true to the original face and a second version incorporating some of your suggestions. I’ve got a wedding to go to this weekend, so this’ll probably go on the back burner for a week or so. Good catch on the dollar sign Hrant, there are also a few scrolls i’m not too proud of as in the Z. I need to go back and scrutinize a little closer. Tiﬀ, I’ll try to work on the spacing so i can set something for you. I was hoping Hrant would point me in the right direction for that one. (I re-read the chapter in Letters of Credit last night so maybe i have a bit better grasp on it now) In the meantime, i’m planning on putting up some proofs back over in the typography section, i gotta ﬁnish up that announcement today. Thanks for your time in leaving some tips and suggestions!

It's a beauty!
