I just want a typeface for roman characters that looks as refined and human as Grecs du Roi. Is that so much to ask?

The thing is, the more successful the kickstarter, the more the typeface will end up being used, and (since it is the kind of thing that will get old) the less valuable it becomes.

It’s like in Robert Anton Wilson’s Reality Is What You Can Get Away With where he proposes a competition in which you can win a million dollars by mailing in a postcard, but only if you are the only person to do so.

I was feeling jaded by the end of the video introducing the project.

I can see how it could be a inspirational font for creating a wide variety of visual solutions. However, it’s key ‘evolving’ characteristic looks to be more well suited for a texting or some other interactive experience. As with most decorative typefaces it’s popularity will ebb and flow.

Great minds think alike?

it’s a story that evolves every time you re-post it!
