Which one do you suggest as the first typeface for someone starting to become serious about type design?
To give more context, here in Iran we have about 10-20 old typefaces, with poor digital versions: only two weights, small character sets, no OpenType features, even some non-smooth curves, ...
I also have idea for new types, but I know turning an idea into a real typeface is not that straightforward.
What do you guys suggest? Making a brand new typeface or reviving one of the old types into a full-featured type family?
I'm also not sure about legal terms concerning revivals. Can I just pick any typeface I want and build a revival version of it?
