Loretta’s New Orleans
1 Comment on “Loretta’s New Orleans”
Letraset’s version of Motter Femina included alternates for r and t. On p67 of his Motter biography (Triest Verlag, 2019), Elias Riedmann shows a photo of the drawing for the wider form for r, with a handwritten note signed “O. Motter 91”. It reads (my translation):
Attention! This second r was later added by Letraset and should be digitized, too. If only one r is possible, this form should be preferred.
URW’s digitization of Motter Femina (1994, discontinued) has only one form for r (and t), and indeed it’s the wider form as specified by the designer. When Motter Fonts produced their official digital version (released in 2008), this expressed preference apparently had fallen into oblivion. The font exclusively includes the other, narrower glyphs for these two characters.
