Subject: Introducing Outstanding
I am posting this on behalf of bob istheowl.
An excerpt of the text file included in the attached zip:
Outstanding is based on Big Vintage Letters by bigletters.org. You can
download the original source graphics used to make this font, (1000 x 800
pixel .jpg files), at:
The small caps lower case is based on the capitals with the shadows removed.
Some letters are unaltered; most are significantly different from the
I reduced the width of the wide stem on a number of letters, (B, D, E, F, H.
I, J, K, L, M, P, R, T, and U), to 30 pixels in my source graphics, compared
to 39-42 pixels width in the capitals. A smaller number of pixels was
removed from the wide diagonal stem on the V and W - I was able to remove
4-6 pixels in the vertical section between the curvatures of upper and lower
serifs. If I had tried to narrow the X or Y, it would have altered straight
line slopes. They don't look overly big. The left and right sides of the O
were made thinner by increasing the size of the white interior. Both sides
of the Q were made equal in the small caps, but the left side is wider than
the right in the capitals, by design.
