The Chesterfield Royal Family was formed from my desire to add new weights to the original Chesterfield typeface. In the process of drawing these new weights, I began modifying some of the forms of the new glyphs away from the original Chesterfield glyphs in order to build a more flexible brick/grid structure for the development of various weights. The most noticeable difference between these three new faces and the original is the lowered x-height. That said, there are still some compromises between the different weights and because of that I've given them these royalty names instead of the normal practice of light, regular, and bold weight names. One of the biggest compromises occurs in the Prince weight, where I was unable to add the notch where bowls and shoulders meet stems (see King and Queen weights) without adding too much extra black weight to those parts of the glyph.

A work in progress for sure. Any help/thoughts/repulsions/bile appreciated.

I, the reigning monarch of the land of Thalmosia, dub thee, Sir Afrojet--knight of the highest order. All hail Sir Afrojet!

...or something less archaic yet of similar sentiment. :)

No bile or repulsion here. This is a magnificent and comprehensive achievement. Oops I didn't vote high enough, not careful enough with the mouse. Never mind.

Shall I give up in disgust now? This is a perfect FS sans condensed.

All hail the king!
For soothe, thy most exalted ruler doth bequeath upon thy subjects a most splendid blessing.
Methinks thine hath begat a mighty work betwixt thy King and Queen.
Thus speaketh thy humble court jester, geneus1. booyah.
