Yay, I made a font again! I've learned so much about spacing, kerning, old style numerals, ligatures and Opentype feature programming from designing this. Took me about 4 weeks to finish it, but I am satisfied :)

A big thanks goes out to Gunnlaugur Briem for his awesomely helpful notes on type design and to Raph Levien for generously providing me with scans from his American Type Foundry 1923 Specimen Book.

Because I am in such a good mood, I decided to make this font free for personal use. Read the included README file to learn what you may and may not do with it.

Favourites & comments if you download or like it are VERY VERY VERY (did I say VERY?) much appreciated! And of course, give proper credit if you use it anywhere public...

Wow, I love this! I can't believe I never saw it before. Congrats on the DD btw :D I finally created my first "traditional" or "serious" serif typeface (Aver [link] ) so I was browsing around looking at some others out there. Nice work! I will have to download it. Awesome that you chose to do oldstyle numerals, I did too! I think they are just neat. :) Also, props on the OpenType features, I really want to learn about OpenType feature programming myself. Respect. :hug: :trophy:

You've created some brilliant fonts :)
May I ask why you give them for free considering how long you spent making them?

I also sell fonts at [link] I give some fonts away for free because more people will be using them and other people using my fonts is the main reason I make fonts :)

The font looks so unique and full of it's own personality on the big titles, yet so delicate and readable on the smaller ones, a great creation indeed! thank you for sharing :meow:
