Working on my second typeface and I'm doing some fractions right now. I've made numerators and denominators, but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the fraction slash for a beginner.
The way I had imagined them looking was like this: https://cl.ly/gdtr
But I recognize that in good typefaces, the fraction slash is diagonal, I suppose so that you can type out any long fraction you want.
My question then— is having a horizontal fraction slash something that ever happens—or does it seem to all of you more like a tacky idea to be abandoned?
