Alf Becker's 268th Lettering demonstration
0

I've been working at digitizing Alf's script for a while now. I faithfully digitized each letter and stroke. At some point I realized that as a demonstration of hand lettering, Alf never intended the forms to be copied precisely. Okay, so I'm slow. In any case, I have a working version of the lower case. Still needs work. I just wanted some input. After working on 268, I have a much greater respect for folks that create scripts.

The original....

Adjusted Lower Case...

Working Samples...

It's a beautiful font great job. Just i notice some of the connections are awkward like in "wom" and "cre"

Thank you for your kind words. I'm stuck in the middle of another project, but I should be getting back to this soon.

I havn't got a great typographic culture, but I do not know any script looking like this one, and I love it!
