I cleaned up the smudges in four of the letters (a, q, w, and z) and put them in the lower case set. There are also some meta-differences such as: I used composite characters for the lower case, you use multiple unicodes. Your approach is probably better, because it's compatible with open type, and I think it may take less space. Mine were also initially created with Font Creator, but edited in FontLab to remove the thousands of nodes that FontLab says are too close ("Object too small"), as well as all the references to FontCreator and its defaults such as 'edit-only embedding'. You use a zero left sidebearing and a 100 right sidebearing; I set them at 50 left and 50 right. Tomato Tomahto. I wonder if the original had simple plain straight parallel lines ... Pepin Press, in all their publications, never bothers to identify sources. Never had a chance to thank you personally for that whole Pepin Press set! So here it is - Thank you! - Character Attachment: Pepin-FA288.ttf
