There's something satisfying about tweaking to perfection a typeface based on a particular style of lettering applied to a particular kind of paper by a particular human hand. One day, in pursuit of this curious sense of satisfaction, I sat down with a porous pad of lined note paper and printed out the alphabet with a ballpoint pen. I found particularly interesting the bulbous ends of the strokes where the ink soaked in. I couldn't help myself: I drew out the rest of the character set, scanned, hand-traced, and manipulated every glyph to an obsessive degree. Named it Cedar Street, after a favorite address of mine. Has a single medium weight with a thorough character set°™more than 650 glyphs in all°™including true small caps, numerous ligatures, and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
