    Looks good! Has a nice shape to it. Looks like it should be used in some kind of fantasy novel.

    Spacing too tight, "a" won't work in text size.

    sandro: yes, i think the a and s might need to be modified if you were going to use it under 14pt

    Loving this, the lowercase 'g' reminds me a little of mrs eaves which can only be a good thing!

    Is this from your classes at Cooper Type, or a side project?

    Great work-in-progress!

    I'm a sucker for Arts & Crafts!

    I think: the -y- is a bit too wide; the -v- looks like it is falling backwards a bit, the left stroke at too much of an angle; and while the -a- and -s- are too closed for text you could always do something similar to this for the display; perhaps the f and t need to share a common cross-stroke height; watch the notches at the bases of the letters where stems and bowls meet (a, b, d) because they can look pronounced but at text sizes not be enough (although I'm not sure because this image isn't hi-res enough).

    The reason the angle of the first stroke on the y is working and the v is not is because the y has the tail to balance it out.

    thanks Tiffany! I think I'm going to put together a pdf when I have the upper and lower alphabets done so you can have a looksee. I think this screen grab is just pretty low res too

    Yay for a Hische text face! Love the soft bifurcated terminals and the slighty curved right arm on the "v" & "w". Can't wait to see the italics and display faces :) The diamond-shaped superscript dot on the "i" is a nice touch as well. Great work.

    Points to you, Alonzo. I couldn't remember the word "bifurcated", while I was writing up my thoughts.

    Love the feel of it - I wouldn't mind owning a few books set in this, gives me a little feeling of joyful coziness, somehow. I'm not sure I'm fond of that lower g though, that tail seems just a tad too curly to me.
