At least I have these quiet nights to myself where I can just sit and zone out and fiddle with letterforms semiconsciously.



New characters in gray. The dollar sign was facetious at first, but I actually like the ridiculousness of it. I think I'll leave it that way. The new es-zet is better, even though it's based on a z design I've since tossed out. Speaking of which, the new z is less bad, but still not ideal. Specifically it doesn't look right next to the a. I'm running out of ideas for it though. By request there are now thorn and eth pairs. jegrasso, sciigos vi min ĉu ili estas taŭgaj, ĉu ne?

I'm in love with the zero, more or less satisfied with the other numerals. I'm looking forward to having a complete set of old-style figures. I love the ascenders and descenders and the squat little 0, 1, and 2. I may experiment with making the 1 more (roman-)I-like than ell-like.

Letters still crying out for attention include M, k, the spacing on the long s. I may try to do a more roman S to see how it looks.
