i got a proof. or a sample. or a prample. or a sproof. please ignore the crooked staple (which i put there to keep said sample together) and what the camera’s flash did to the picture of the umbrella (making it look washed-out when it actually looks really nice). i’m really happy with the way this font ended up coming out on the page. i was afraid it might bleed a little, but it looks like it came right out of a real manual typewriter, with none of the “nice try but you’re just a pretender” feeling you get from some typewriter-based fonts.
if i didn’t make any bone-headed typos anywhere, i’ll give ’em the go-ahead to start making the booklets and inserts tomorrow. a release date next week is looking right on target now. progress! palpable progress! it’s a beautiful thing.
