Cappuccino Serif 0.563

There are way too many things to talk about in this box, so I will try to limit it to relevant-ish things.

You are free to use this typeface for non-commercial purposes. I suppose you can modify if you'd like, but if you do I'd really appreciate you asking permission before you publish it, etc.

Why beta?
Well, this one is actually pretty well kerned, though it's a bit tight for small point sizes. It is missing a few things though:
^{}*%#~ and all the assorted other accents. Also non typographer's quotes. I'm working on them, I swear, but I can never get them to look good. Also missing: italic and bold fonts. They are being sketched, but I'm somewhat sick of this typeface at this point and don't feel like staring at all my mistakes. Also there are mistakes. Not real mistakes, but like I'm really a crazy person who really wants something to look a certain way, but it's slightly off but not off enough to actually merit messing everything up; so I deal with it.

Format:
Opentype PS (Type 1)
Both Mac and PC compatible.

Expected update:
I'm going to fill in some of the gaps (most notably I want to take care of accents). I'm sick of working on it at the moment, but I'm going to say I'll update around the 14th or so for those who need the extra characters and junk.

**Edit 1/4/2011
Realized I really had no reason to zip the thing, so now it's just the otf download. Nothing major.

**Edit 1/24/2011
Major revision time. A whole bunch of characters got edited, kerning changed, things added, and more. First, totally reworked a couple characters I didn't like, and a whole bunch of minor changes to others. Second, I added some basic accents (acute and grave) and a sweet Th ligature. Third, some kerning edits to make it have better flow. The big thing here is that I think this represents the end of the major revisions to the letter-forms, now onto bigger and better things.

A big thank you to all of those who have stopped by, and definitely to those who gave a :+fav: :hug:. Your support has made a big difference and is what drives me to keep at this.

Hi! This looks promising. :) I can definitely see some art deco in there!

A few tips:

* Try to even out the contrast on the different letters. Particularly the 'a' looks almost monoline, and feels like a sans font because of that. But just overall make most of your thins thinner.
* The descenders are a tad long in comparison to ascenders.
* On letters like 'i' and 'j', the dot appears to be floating off.
* Again, the 'a' looks a bit like a sans 'a'. Try use the same type of terminal as in the 'r' for the upper terminal.

Anyway, keep it up! Your Kei Serif is also pretty good. :)

I really like the hand-lettered appearance. A very prolific font with a nice rustic charm.

I'm considering using this on a informational poster about poison oak for a school project. It has a possibility of being put up near a nature trail by our town library and wanted permission before I used it. Credit would be given as "Font courtesy of keisans-bold, user at deviantArt.com". First off is it okay to use it, second is that a reasonable way to credit you?

I really like this font. It really captures the right now in font design. Instead of trying to capture a specific genre feel of the past or future. Right now is what this font invokes. NICE!

I started more or less from scratch, though the original conception was to be an old-style based on the golden proportions. After really only a couple of glyphs the font really took on a life of its own, evolving into what it is now. Thanks so much for the support!

I love your ampersand! I think its my favorite character :-) I also like your upper case M but I think the top serif seems a little too detached.

Thank you, I'm a big fan of the ampersand too. I see what you mean about the M, and I've reworked it a couple times to make it a bit more elegant, and I think the current version (unreleased) is a little better about that. In any case thanks for your critique, I really appreciate it!

I wouldn't talk about any mistakes or you not feeling this font is not great. It is great and it look fantastic! The hole world is always out to screw you and put you down, there is really no need for you to start them off, or give them ammo by pointing out what you feel you did wrong, I can bet that most if not all people would not notice these small inconsistencies.
Plus it's a great looking free font, if they complain they can always go pay a couple hundred dollars for another one.
Just my thought hope you don't mind.

Thank you for the font. It look great.

Thank you so much for your comment. There are issues. Quantifiable ones. To elaborate, there are issues with the punctuation, especially the double quote marks (") The ampersand I like, but I feel like I need alternate versions to be more in line with what is expected (I felt like being really type nerdy and pulling out the traditional et sign as opposed to the modern ampersand glyph).

Anyways, these are all fixable problems, and I intend to do so, and despite my self depreciating comment, your message really made my day, so thank you for that.
