the funny corners result in some gaps after characters with an open right side (see F or T) but what the heck, it's a fun thing…

why not being more consequent?
cut'em all :D

Well, I've been working with (real ;)) fonts for over 20 years now, and one thing I've learnt is that visually, consequence often leads to something that doesn't work anymore. First apply your concept, than let the eye make the final call. The mind makes the rules, the eye bends them along the way. With this modular system I was interested in inducing seemingly inconsequent elements, or at least breaking the rigidity from the start.
Anyway, with this particular fontstruction, cutting them all would lead to very unbalanced word shapes. I, J and L would become midgets and every other letter with an open top would feel like some limb was amputated. X would become unreadable etc…
While fontstructing I spend more time in the preview window, typing and comparing wordshapes than in the 'structing' window, and often I am zapping between them to see what a minor change in one character might do next to other characters in a sentence.

Hey and if that one vote comes from you: thank-you! ;)
