type@cooper…day 9

Today I drew uncial scripts for over four hours. Several styles, trying to get a feel for the letters and how they were created. From there I developed a lowercase alphabet. My goal was to create a font that could be used for children’s storybooks, or fairy tale books.

I’m pretty excited with how it’s going so far. Right now it makes me think of Sleeping Beauty, and I’ve had songs from the movie running through my head all afternoon. I named it Paramithi, which is Greek for fairy tale. (Fairy Tale in English was already taken by another rather lame font.)
