(no subject)

Have been working the last few days on a font I think I'm going to use on the cover of the upcoming vanity press version of my thesis. It looks like this:

Just a mostly bare-bones slightly-italic light sans, but I am kind of fond of it. As usual it is just a first draft, and still requires some spacing and weight adjustment. Not sure I like the cap J exactly. Apart from it the basic shape of everything is mostly what I want. Except maybe some of the lowercase letters (c, e, g) don't feel... italic enough, or something.
