Hello, I am about to begin work on my first typeface. This will be a digitization of the letters that my grandfather drew on Christmas cards and the like. It's sort of a Bodoni-esque style filtered threw my grandpa's congenital hand tremor.
The reason I am posting is this: I have enough experience in other things to know that there are usually important questions to ask one's self at the outset of a project like this. Having zero experience in making a typeface, I don't know that I'm asking myself enough questions, or the right ones, or all of them.
My question for you is this: from your experience, what are the major and minor considerations for creating a typeface based on the sample posted below?
Thank you very much,
