Is the above example (Parmigiano Text
) a good example of how to go about this?
There are a couple of issues: firstly, it is impossible to achieve the same color as in the vertically stressed Latin; and if we use the Latin stress pattern for the caps, we end with caps much darker than the minuscule. On a minor note, the apparent x-height is lower than in Latin because the center of the heavier horizontal stroke is lower than that of a thin one.
Are these non-issues? Or does the process basically require to minimize these problems as much as possible and try to be happy with the result anyway?
Or maybe there isn't much merit to the horizontal stress in new multiscript designs in the first place?
