I was on a book reading spree. I found myself switching to serif fonts for easier reading at small point sizes. Hence, I decided to make a serif font.

But intention alone does not mean success. The glyphs are not quite right, but I can't seem to get the curves and angles righter. For instance, the slimmer M is too slim and the wider M is too wide. They are only off by one angle step. That means there's no inbetween M width that can be achieved. Similarly, the S sweeping curve is too thick. *I* can't seem to make the curve any thinner (without losing smoothness).

Compromises have been made; imperfection has been achieved. This is so much harder than it would seem. At least for me. p2pnut or Beate would whip it into shipshape and beat it into submission, for sure.

Using DJNippa's composite bricks, I calculated the following possible angles (rounded to the nearest 0.5°): 0°, 7°, 9.5°, 14°, 18.5°, 26.5°, 33.5°, 45°, 56.5°, 63.5°, 71.5°, 76°, 80.5°, 83°, 90°.

Try using a less steep angle for the s.

I like your approach of something broken acting serif. Perhaps the 'S' (at the marked locations) is a little too strong?
