I really like my handwriting - kind of a post-modern
script, similar to the Champignon
font - but more dynamic - so the flourishes I use here and there change with the context - my lowercase "t", for example gets crossed and descends differently if it is the final letter, in the middle of a sequence, or at the beginning of a word.
I have been researching how to turn my handwriting into a font
I have searched the archives
, but nothing quite touches on what I need to know.
So my question:
If I am trying to create my own font, can I establish rules that determine which version of a character are used based on the letters to the right and left or would I have to create a different version of each letter and use different keys for them? Is this possible?
If the software I am seeing online won't work, how much should I expect to pay a typeface designer to charge? Do you know of a good article/book/reference that would explain it any better than Wikipedia does?
This is kind of a new world for me, so I am a little ignorant about the details.
