I’ve had this scan of a typeface from a Dover book (i think?) on my desktop for a while with the intention of learning Fontlab while digitizing it. From what I’ve read here this seems to be the best way to get “stuck in”.
Here’s the scan.
And here’s a pdf of my progress so far.
Also if anybody knows if this typeface happens to exist somewhere I’d appreciate it. Like I said this was for learning purposes so I guess that would help to see where I’m going wrong. I was considering making it a freebie after I’m done if it doesn’t currently exist.
I’ve been looking for a decent ‘how to’ guide for designing a typeface and Kris Sowersby’s article on I love typography is the best I could find. Any other suggestions are much appreciated.
