Amazing detail.

Comment by Rob Meek (meek) Thu, 26th January

Thin serif letters crafted with utmost precision. Elegance and perfection hand in hand. What a beauty. 10/10

SORRY, IT'S IN GERMAN : ))

Hey Laynekom,
Dies ist eine sehr, sehr feine Arbeit. Viel Arbeit. Ehrlich. Meine Gratulation.
Dennoch ein paar kleine Anmerkungen: 
Vielleicht ist der Strich vom Eth etwas zu hoch. Der Abschluß des Unterschwungs des C und c bspw. wirkt ein wenig abrupt. Aber das liegt vielleicht auch daran, daß die Kurven hier immer diegleiche Neigung haben.
Das "&", "k" und "ß" wirken etwas zu steif. Das "K" scheint nicht ganz ausgeglichen (Dickte der oberen Diagonalen) Aber das ist Meckern auf sehr, sehr hohem Niveau…

; ) 

Mea culpa, ich bin nicht besser.

Ganz liebe Grüsse,
Beate

Hallo Beate,

danke für die ausführliche Rezension. Die Type ist Work in Progress, deswegen bin ich sehr dankbar für Feedback, mit dem ich Verbesserungen anbringen kann. Mein Problem ist, dass ich meistens versuche, keine Faux Curves zu benutzen. Das ist meine Herausforderung und meine Limitierung. Aber du hast Recht, einige Glyphen sind für die gesamte Schriftart zu statisch (oder steif). Ich habe am Ampersand rumprobiert, muss aber wirklich noch mal ran... Das ist auch der Grund, warum der untere Auslauf beim C so komisch aussieht. Ich bin dankbar für Vorschläge. ;-)

Die Diagonal im K ist eigentlich genau die Dicke der anderen Striche. Ich habe ein Bild eingefügt, dass das verdeutlicht. In der Vorschau sieht man aber tatsächlich, dass die obere Diagonale dicker erscheint. In Sinne einer späteren Weiterverarbeitung würde ich es aber so lassen.

Das kleine k finde ich so ok... :-)

Dass du nicht besser bist, würde ich so nicht stehen lassen! Im Gegenteil, du hast einen besseren Blick für Details und mehr Geduld bei der detaillierten Ausführung der Glyphen. Das bewundere ich!

Liebe Grüße zurück,

Alexander

Changes: C, c and e changed according to beate's suggestion. Same goes for & and ß. Kerning in progress but started. Optical changes in K and z.

Comment by laynecom Thu, 9th February

Elegant, open, light, easy to read with some unusual 'swing'. A modern serif style perfect for long text. Love those ends with the slimmed end of line (e,C,c). I'd do the g, j, J,Q,(,{,),} the same 10/10

Comment by Aeolien Thu, 9th February

Thanks for your feedback. I'll think about your suggestion.

Comment by laynecom Thu, 9th February

New ligatures: ci and ct (do they even exist? :-) )

Love, Love, Lo`o`o`ve ... that B blew me away, you're right, we need that font in extrasuperlarge to see those hidden beauties. Fabulous ligatures! The whittled End-'punkte' on g etc integrate well.

Comment by Aeolien Sat, 11th February

Very nice typewriter/machine style slab serif font.  Good work.

Thanks! As if you needed it... :-D

Изумительно! (Ee-zoo-mee-tel-noh!) You can tell how many days did you spend on this masterpiece? You can add the Cyrillic alphabet? 11/10

Comment by Baljinima Batomunkuev (MadSheep3) Wed, 15th February

Woah. The way you manage such modular brick to achieve this shapes is magical.

Comment by cablecomputer Wed, 15th February

@Baljinima: About a month. However, basic elements have been created in three days. It is all still work in progress, I will consider adding Cyrillic as well.

@cablecomputer: Thank you! :-)

Comment by laynecom Fri, 17th February

I hope the above says "basic cyrillic support added". If not, please comment... :-)

Comment by laynecom Fri, 17th February

@laynecom All is correct, don't worry.

Comment by Baljinima Batomunkuev (MadSheep3) Fri, 17th February

Thanks to Google Translate ;-)

And thank you for confirming that!
