Beanmaps– I mean bitmaps.

I fixed a lot of weirdness with my letters. Giant counters, inconsistent x-height, “interesting” kerning… It was a sloppy mess. But it’s a lot better now. My x-height is now a very strict 7 beans (units) tall. And my counters in my lowercase letters are 3 beans wide. That makes everything feel more unified. And I didn’t have to change the scale of my beans and letters to make everything fit. It just works. No more hacking my way through this. I’m very pleased.
Oh, one side note. For those who are wondering, my composition is so freakishly wide because “Legume Protein” is such a wide phrase on a 4 inch tall piece of paper.
The more you know…
