Manskribo work

I’m probably going to remove the ‘CF’ (‘Crud Factory’) from my font names and put the fonts into the public domain.

Anyway, here is some insight into the state of the font so far. A few parts, such as the braces and letters with ogonek, are designs or redesigns by me, while most of it is lookalike (putting outlines around a bitmap image). The new braces are similar to those of a distantly related typeface. In a few slots I’m just saving bits of work I think I might need later, and stuff like that.

Designing is really difficult for me, because I can’t use a pencil or stylus. With Prociono I added and removed points somewhat ‘randomly’ and selected for what looked good, but that won’t work here because this font needs to be true to an existing design. It’s really too much work for my hands and so forth but it’s very good for my head. (My therapist says so.)
