Nice work completing your basic latin set, ETH! If only there was a way to slim the spine of your s without losing its curvaceousness. It is not obvious how to resolve this classic FontStruct conundrum at this scale.
Lowercase t may benefit from a reduction in height, as well as thinning the crossbar and aligning the top of this horizontal to the x-height. W and z are a bit wide and dark – V could lend a foundation for a new W.
@will.i.ૐ: Thank you! I have a set with basic accents, too, but the spacing between the lines is ridiculous...
I know what you mean about the s. And I fixed the W, t and z. Thanks for pointing them out!
Very nice work.
Here are a few ideas for the s. Your original is on the left.
@aphoria: Thank you for the suggestions! I've already tried out an s very similar to the 4th one, but it doesn't look right, so I left it on the ß character. I might try the middle one, but I'm not sure...
One more idea...
Nice s aphoria!
@aphoria: Wow! Amazing s! That s doesn't fit perfectly with the font, but I think it is the best one.
Anyone have a vote for which one fits best?
the first one or the third one
aphoria’s definitely on to something. Try your s one brick narrower like:
I agree. I like 1 the best, but I also think it looks better a bit narrower.
@will.i.ૐ: Very clever! Do you think it fits in with the rest of the font?
@ETH: Thanks. :)
You may consider revising S accordingly; otherwise, I think the last option fits best with the rest of Excalibur so far.
Way to go, Will! I vote the last one.
Excellent work, that last s also has my vote!
will.i.ૐ had a great idea to make the s once brick narrower. That one has my vote.
Thank you, everybody! And especially thanks to will.i.ૐ for the suggestion! I have updated the s and left some alternates in the More Latin set.
A very even, handwritten flow despite the inherent rigidity of its forms. The sprightly, angular effect is reminiscent of the lively lettering found in mid-century advertising.
