DaySquareCut: an old font makes a comeback

One of my earliest fonts was DaySquareCut, my interpretation of Lewis F. Day's Quasi-Chinese lettering, which I released in 1997. I withdrew it a couple of years after that, but have revisited it.

It's been completely re-designed. The proportions have been changed slightly, and the lower-case letters are much wider than they used to be. I've also added lots of characters, so that most European Latin script languages can be written in it. Not that I'd write anything more than a short title in it, mind. This is definitely a decorative face.

The basic version of this font has been lurking around my hard disk for quite a while. I originally threw it together for a business card I was designing for an author, based on the cover of one of his books. It seemed such a waste, so I brought it up to spec. Accelerando includes katakana, the first of my typefaces to do so (though I've been adding it to Astradyne as well). It's also the first font I've made with over 1000 glyphs.
