Hey people, this is "my" (well not really mine, it's just a vectorization) first font!
I decided to revive this after I saw some sketches of the 'universal alphabet' and discovered the digital versions were just cleaned versions of his wood-type printings... but as they were tests they had small imperfections (like bad curves etc) that when vectorized and look worse when we use them on bigger sizes.
Here's the three wheights I made based on his prints (only the A, full character set on PDF):
Ah! I'm making this inspired by the old Multiple Masters technology so I used the same number of nodes in all characters so they are blendable to make an infinite number of wheights! No numbers yet.
I don't really know if this is releasable/sellable but the most important thing is the knowledge I've acquired during the process and the perfect preservation of the letterforms digitally!
Also, on the grid studies I used auto-trace on very high-res pictures I scanned and compared to my version!
Please, guys, criticize specially the lighter wheights on the PDF attachment (I forgot the W but it's just an upside-down M in this haha)
