I would like to try creating typefaces from drawings that I could scan, and
as I look through various typography books showing older drawings, I notice
how they're all set up on a template that's basically an em space grided
out with baselines, x-height, cap height, etc.
I'm wondering if there are pads set up with these done in blueline or
something...you know, like a spiral book with pages set up for individual
Am I just being plain kooky? Spiral binding would be really cool and lay
flat on a scanner, and if it were blueline, well...all the better. Plus, if
it were handy enough to carry around in a backpack or throw in the
briefcase. I could sketch in it whenever I was sitting around...
Does this exist?
(Newbie and all that...)
