Hermit: a font for programmers, by a programmer
Posted 9 Sep 2013 - 2:36pm

Typophiles here might be interested in this praiseworthy endeavour by a programmer who’s designing his own monospace font for coding. For now, one weight and one style only, but he seems to have quite a few optical sizes in mind (probably without him...

FontLab has a feature called "Expand Strokes" which simulates the movement of a calligraphic pen (brush) over a given curve (path). The prime parameters are restricted to the pen's width, its angle and thickness (which FL calls "Roundness"); and then...

Which classic designs Typophiles like to see revived into digital fonts?

Please mention the year of its release, its designer/punchcutter, the foundry/institution that issued the type, and, if possible, include a sample.
