Drawing an alphabet – p
Initial idea: standard text font
Thought I should attempt a letter you might find in a ‘workhorse’ font. The sort that would be used in a book. Where do you start?
The main purpose of this type of font is to be unobtrusive. The idea of how such a font should look is quite fixed. Almost all novels are set in one of a handful of very similar looking fonts. It’s very difficult to create a font that is both unobtrusive and original.
This, then, is a bit of a pointless exercise.1 I’ve just copied some of the standard features of fonts of this type and not added anything.
This is part of a project to draw the letters of the alphabet in different styles.
