Because it's so close to Venetians (in fact like an Art Deco or Art Nouveau Venetian), I had the idea to do something with it for a very long time.
That's also interesting to know that it was designed by Goudy at the same time Auriol designed its first release of Auriol (1903)
While Goudy changed the /i dot in next releases I loved the nearly triangular of the first one but it was a challenge to draw accents.
It should. None of the rounds have any overshoot that I can detect. If there really is some, it is so tiny as to be immeasurable.
I see there are just a few digital designs trying to grasp the typeface’s essence (or meant as "reinterpretations"?) – it would be good to have a rendition wtrying to be (as much as possible) accurate.
Your tittles read as more "linear" to me (like accents aigus) than the triangle shapes I get from Goudy. Your /r seems wider to me than his.
I love when considering a revival like this gets me to look more closely at historical designs. Those varying descender depths are wild!
I'm trying to diagnose why he can get away with that fender-bender of a /g: it may be that the more intact top bowl is bigger in his version than yours.
About the difference between the /i tittle and an /i with an acute accent I will do some testing.
Also, rather than French, test this issue in a language such as Hungarian, which uses the í accent.
