Once upon a time I wondered what would happen if Script Typefaces would be conceived under the same parametres than Roman Typefaces. While roman type families grow in cuts and optical weights, script typefaces are often designed in one cut, and they differ from each other through variations in shape and proportions. With my first typeface Supernova I explored the concept of “Family of Scripts” by creating a family with several weights and cuts, including an expressive display version and a highly legible body-text version with five weights.
Wonderhand is my new extensive family of scripts with 63 fonts designed in seven widths and three weights. It also introduces a third design axis , the slant, presenting an upright 0° cut, a 20° cut and a 40° cut for each. It contains two sets of alternate characters and automatic features that imitate the natural flow of handwriting. Like written by different hands, eat cut has a unique appearance and character.
