predictably these typography experiments have spiraled into an obsessive search to engineer the Perfect Way To Represent Shapes On A Computer Because Everyone Else Has Obviously Gotten It Wrong
@aparrish Like every good project!
@aparrish May I point you to http://levien.com/phd/phd.html - a beautifully illustrated thesis on this, and quite legible, too!
@aparrish what about the Unified Font Object and Robofab/Robofont python libs/tools?
@aparrish Knuth's Metafont is fun and still works pretty well. @crickxson et. al. have done some nice experiments with it. Might be a good start (if you haven't found it already).
@KnowPresent @crickxson ohhh metafont is a good call. just discovered this which is like candy https://www.metaflop.com/
