New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Some early hand sketchs of some type designers have little lines on the outline of the characters, like this one of Jean François-Pochez (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4147/5032761184_4c3f907cdc_b.jpg)
This little lines become nodes on the scanning process? Or what is the true function of them?
