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

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.

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!

Congrats, Paul.

"Almost 1000 glyphs" ... the hours of work involved.

It's a beauty!
