Alpine Font 2 April 2012 by brianskywalker Alpine Font 2 April 2012 by brianskywalker
Toying with a new 'a', although I'm afraid it's not as "warm" as previous examples.

Really liking the new 'a' though I would still give its tail a bit of a curl. The 'r' looks well balanced. I'm not 100% certain about the ear in 'g' being connected with the top like that though. It looks consistent with 't' but in my opinion it looks too odd. It might be excellent at text sizes though.

I'm working on completing the caps and spacing things a little more realistically, so I can do some good text prints. Then we can see what's really working or not.

Don't you want this one to work at display size as well though?

You do have a point. Honestly I'd like to make a version drawn especially for display sizes. To certain extent, when one makes a font for all sizes, there has to be a lot of compromises for some sizes. Whereas by focusing on making it work for just a small class of sizes, I can make it truer to that size. The same things that make it work well at text sizes though, will probably make it quirky & interesting at large sizes.

Well a typeface like Calunna works brilliantly at all sizes. What you're working on now really seems to be an excellent text font so a special display version seems like a great idea.

Yes, I think perhaps a certain robustness can be used to make something work well across the board. And that's a good thing to have. But not all typefaces want to have that kind of quality and air. I want Apline to live in text, as if it had just grown up there in books.
