Old Type Forged Anew
(typos left in for true fake-typecast authenticity)
of the Typosphere page may note that the header is now done with one of Richard's fonts (Byron Mark II)
I'd be thrilled to contribute what few typefaces I have to a project like this: I don't know how much trouble it is to convert a scan into a face, but I have some faces -- even mundane ones -- that I'm fond of, like the rounded Roman letters of my SM-9, and the face on my Smith-Corona Sterling that has little half-serifs on its lowercase "n" And of course, I think the letters of the script Lettera are worth preserving... and aligning, which is easy on the digital side.
Richard... Georg... are you up for some scanning?
