New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I was just looking at some old work and found my 'sticky' Cooper Black Italic liagature/swash drawing from the old Type Battle.
I thought it could be interesting to make an otf of alt characters that you could just go through cooper black stuff and swap in swashy contextual alternates. A companion font, building on something good; updating rather than recreating.
It would be only new, original glyphs. There would be no ascii characters, only OT alts, and no original Cooper Black characters.
I see potential legal problems. What about releasing it free (maybe a creative commons license)? How about naming?
What do you think?
