The interpretation of a specimen of handwriting into the mechanical relationships necessary for a successful digital typeface involves an understanding of the elements of form that contribute to the unique identity that is conveyed in the inter-relationships of various letters. The writing instrument and the writing surface contribute their own character to the letterforms. Pen-Drawn is based on a traditional aldine italic letter, as produced in large proportion with a narrow nib on a rough ground.
