one of the most noteworthy font releases of this year has got to be legato by evert bloemsma. being a curious sort, i had a peek at the outlines. i was surprised that rather a lot of points are being used to describe the curves.
the green i is the legato outlines, the orange i is what i would have *expected* to see (ie minimum number of points)
i wonder if additional points are being added at the 'font development/output stage' (ie. after the glyph has been drawn). if that's the case, why exactly? is it something to do with format conversion?
typophile input welcomed.
