Firstly, I'd like to boast about this (https://www.mdpi.com/2411-5150/3/1/1)
peer-reviewed publication about the overestimation of horizontal thickness, which, by the way, mentions typedrawers as a source. I know it's not your typical read for a type nerd, but I hope you can enjoy it.
Secondly, I'd like to ask: Do you think experimental science can make a valuable contribution to type design? And: What concepts from type design could be interesting scientifically?
All the best,
Edit: Of course I should have started with: happy new year everyone!
