    Very nice. Those, like me, admiring this and planning something similar should note that Playfair Display is a wild child in italics, with no alternates: you’ve got some letters you wish you could sometimes take swashes off and others you feel could benefit from them. Whatever you do, don’t use all caps: spacing and consistency will not look good. Title case or all-lower case.

    Those hoping they’d found a freeware version of Surveyor: yes, I was one of you once, and it’s certainly as much fun as I’ve had in a while, but you get what you pay for, sadly.
