I would like to hear your opinions and advice on Misurina
, a high-contrast calligraphic font. It is a spin-off product of my work on the much more ambitious Maestrale
font, which features exuberant ascenders, descenders, and swashes extending two x-heights above and below the x-height. In contrast, Misurina has almost child-like chubby proportions hugging the x-height. While it will take me a while longer to bring Maestrale to its due completion, I feel like releasing Misurina as a freefont in the near future (I was even considering the name «Maestrale Baby») to generate visibility and interest for Maestrale.
