Shape variations: Learning Type Design
Shape variations: Learning Type Design

Most letters have a basic, expected skeleton. The lowercase n, for instance, rarely varies from the fundamental stroke-plus-shoulder construction. Some letters, however, have multiple alternate skeletal forms. The leg on a capital R can be straight or flowing. The bottom of a lowercase t can be straight or hooked. Shape variations are another tool for injecting novelty into a design.
