I'm Lorenzo Miglietta, 23-year-old Graphic designer, blogger and novice type designer. I am working on my first typeface: Astar.
Before starting designing these letter i'm going to show you, I spent months and months studying the old great type designers like Edward Johnston, Eric Gill and Jenson.
Astar is partially inspired by the works of those guys.
The idea is to design an high-readable, functional and extremely elegant type family.
The starting point is this: the Astar Bold (I'm already working on the regular and bold italic - a true italic - versions).
Being a self-taught on type design, I would love to hear advice from these wonderful community.
Any feedback, any critique (even a fierce one) would be extremely appreciated.

Thank you much for your precious time,
