Say hello to the first character developed for The Letterpress Alphabetical Diary. This 'a' is based on the font Sovereign Regular by G-Type, developed in 2009. G-Type was founded by Nick Cooke in 1999, this cut courtesy of Font Squirrel.
Don't forget to grab the editable eps and use the character for your project, or smash it up and send me a copy back. The edit's I'll feature here as a changelog to track its development.
