I have now produced an italic version of the Whiteboard Venetian font. This has been produced within FontCreator 5.6 using the Glyph Transformer Italic effect, using an angle of 7.13 degrees.
It is called an italic, though it is just an italic produced by processing the ordinary font rather than designing an italic font specially. So, for example, the lowercase l has a serif at the base.
If some readers are considering installing the font, then before installing the font some of those readers might like to have a look at the following thread, in particular my post within that thread which is timestamped as Mon Mar 10, 2008 8:05 am (the time and maybe the day may vary depending upon your local time zone settings).
If the ordinary Whiteboard Venetian font is already installed on the local computer yet the italic font has not been installed, some readers might like to set some text at 24 point in Whiteboard Venetian in WordPad and then highlight the text and set it to be italic. WordPad does its best to imitate an italic, using an angle of about (exactly?) 20 degrees. Using Format Font... shows that the italic is being imitated.
Installing the Whiteboard Venetian Italic font on the local computer and repeating the test using WordPad displays the effect of using the italic font, as using Format Font... should show.
Here is the link for the font.
Although the font is an italic produced by processing the ordinary font rather than by the designing of an italic font specially, hopefully the font will be of interest. Maybe the relatively small angle of the italic effect means that the serif on the base of the lowercase l does not look out of place.
