Hattha • Felt-tip Pen Handwriting

Post by Bhikkhu Pesala » Thu Apr 19, 2007 9:26 pm

This font started out as my handwriting drawn with a felt-tip marker pen and scanned at 300 dpi. I did a lot of manual smoothing in Font Creator using the Align tools to create straight lines, and adding nodes to create smooth curves.

I used Complete Composites to add all of the accented characters
I used copy and paste to add the arrows, symbols, and dingbats from my other fonts. Then the Glyph Transformer to resize them to match.

The bold version was created from the regular with the Glyph Transformer, which was also used to create the Superscripts from the digits.

Updated with an italic version. Many glyphs just needed skewing by 15° with the Glyph Transformer, while other glyphs had to be redrawn.

Updated to version 1.2 to fix a mapping problem.
