A 9 point font I did the other day.

As usual I just went about & forgot everything called spacing.
Let me know what you think.

Peter,

I applaud three things:

1, The caps are a good height - shorter than
ascenders. Too often designers of pixel fonts
forget what's been learned from traditional
typography.

2, The extensive character set. I suppose we
should expect a good number of accented glyphs
from a Swede. ;)

3, The uc 'W'. It's nice.

It's great to see you here. I admire your work
and often point to Mercury's little 'g' when
people ask why I love typography so much.

Welcome.

Stephen

I like this a lot.

To echo Stephen, the UC height is great. The
numerals are nice too.

The 'serifs' on the lc f and l as well as the UC I
and J are a nice touch. The lc r is also nice.
These nuances illustrate how attentiveness to
optics at this scale is more important than
how it's 'supposed' to be drawn.

I have to get knit-picky and say that I don't care
for the fat arrowheads hanging on those thin
stems. Perhaps they don't need stems...

Out of curiousity, what are your plans for this
face? A bold version?

thank you Stephen & Joe

Hmm...maybe I should loose the arrows in the regular font & just put them & all the other figures in a dingbat set...?!

I thought it would be nice to have a quick font for small texts in web graphics.

A bold version wouöld be nice..if I ever get the time.
