It’s 2023. I’m in my studio in Finsbury Park, flipping through the Encyclopaedia of Typefaces. On page 335, I notice a specimen of Spartan, the Book weight, with strange proportions on its capital letters. I wonder whether there’s a lowercase alphabet to match. Google and Fonts In Use provide no leads, and I feel too lazy to search harder. It’s probably already been revived. Maybe I’ll change it to look more like ITC Avant Garde. Maybe I’ll mix it with some Neo-Grotesque features, so I can say I’ve added something. I take a photo of the page with my iPhone and AirDrop the JPEG to my MacBook Pro. I open up Glyphs 3 and start to draw with the image in the background layer.
