Temporary name change

This blog is now reverted temporarily to it’s official name.

I’m showing off a font I am working on. I decided to make enough letters to spell out ‘LA RUBUJO’. It’s based on a typeface with the same name as the Queen of the Bahamas; Jim Rimmer did a digital version and called it after a variant of that name, ‘Isabelle’; I’m calling mine after a different variant of the Queen’s name, ‘Lisette’. (The Queen herself is more of a ‘Lilibeth’.)

The typeface actually came in large range of sizes (of metal type) and was a decent text face, but I’m working from the 24-point, for which I have the most complete specimen. There is an italic as well, but I haven’t started on that.

(The script font is not by me. I wish it were.)
