Betatype

Serif Beta

I'm attaching a beta of my yet to be named serif family here. All of the usual caveats apply (wonky spacing, incomplete characters, etc). Feel free to use it wherever you want, just don't redistribute or try to sell it, and let me know if you have any feedback.

Included in the set are Regular,Italic,Bold,Bold Italic for optical sizes 72, 12 and 6. Size 72 also includes italic swash characters and Black weights.

WOW! that's gutsy, Christian. not that i'm complaining, but what inspired you to be so generous here? (i'm curious) a second WOW! on the type, can't wait to give it a spin...

To be honest, I'm a little stuck, so I'm looking for comments and suggestions from awesome type designers like you, Paul :) I also think that the final will have some significant enhancements and more sparkle to the point that people will want the real thing after they have downloaded the beta. In the mean time I'm hoping that a few more people find out about my work.

I'm no expert but nice typeface.

Christian, in what way are you stuck? Or are you even still stuck? A little direction will help Paull lend his advice!

Beautiful.

nice type !

This is an absolutely beautiful text face. Any updates?

I'm new to font appreciation, but this seems like a very well balanced package. It's easy to read at a variety of sizes, and the various weights and styles still look like a cohesive family.

I'd be interested to see what the finished version looks like and what you decide on changing.

Thanks for a nice bit of work(-in-progress).

Thank you for these fonts; they are very nice indeed. I have just one feature request: would it be possible to add a lookup table that switches on the italic swashes? I could do it myself, but I'm not sure your licence would allow for that.

I need to get a more formal license for these betas. In the mean time, here is my take on editing the font files:

1 / If you can install a font, you should be able to edit it.
2 / If you do edit the font, don't try to claim it as your own and try to redistribute or sell. In other words, the original license terms apply to the derivatives.

So feel free to crack it open.

Many gratitudes are going your way for this beautiful and generous font!

Esta web me parece una idea genial

Hi there! I am sorry for asking , what could possibly be a stupid question! I play a game called "Second Life". There are a ton of stores that sell items / clothing / tatoos for RL money.

I was wanting to make certain that these fonts are useable in : t-shirts / tatoos / etc , whatever I would like. As long as I don't try to sell the "font" it's self, I'm ok selling the other items?

Hopefully you answer back! :) Have a great day.
