    And wasn't it Kieslowski who said (something like) that what he
    enjoys best in filmmaking is cutting the best scene out
    of the film for this very same reason. Even in my early stage
    of graphic design studies, I've found this to be a very hard but
    many times necessary part of this or any creative work.

    So I'll look forward to seeing the typeface!
