Here’s another peek at the results of the digitisation project. A total of 89 unique contributions, this illustrates that the method developed to normalise the data gets good results, both for comparing the outlines as well as positioning the bitmap.
This image also shows that there is an enormous differentiation between the way specific landmarks are interpreted.
More results, fancy images, list of contributors will follow.
Just think that with linear steps in point size, the increment gets smaller when the type gets bigger. A +0.5 step on a 6 point text is about 8%, but a +0.5 step on 30 point text is only 0.016%. See what I’m getting at? TypeSizer lets you take 0.25% proportional steps relative to the size of the text. The point size will become a non-integer, but hey, this is why we have scalable type. Your readers deserve your attention. Real microtypography geeks rock the floats on text sizes.
