Bitcount Prop

This spacing variant contains glyphs as wide as they need to be (e.g. “m” and “M”), including their necessary spacing and kerning. The vertical metrics (accents, ascender, and descenders) is identical to the Mono variant.

The DrawBot script that generates this animation is explained here

Image description

The Prop variant has full kerning for all glyph combinations where necessary. In Single glyphs, stems are defined by one pixel. This makes thinner letters, but also leaves too much space in diagonals. The Light is almost too light be used by itself. But it can well be used as highlight in combination with other shapes and weights. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots.

Image description

The Italic variant is identical to Roman, with a slant of 14/100 angle. Italic glyphs with Circle pixels just have them shifted over a 14/100 angle. There are no “slanted” circles.

Image description

The Prop matrix measures 1/10 of the EM square for each pixel position. In the Double there is an addition “constrast-pixel” in some glyphs to fill diagonal holes. They can be removed by OpenType feature [ss05]. As the Light weight pixels register on the grid for alignment in layers with other shapes and weights, they are positioned above the base line. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to simulate Led displays.

The Prop is the variant of Bitcount with proportional spacing. In Single glyphs, stems are defined by one pixel. This makes thinner letters, but also leaves too much space in diagonals. Book is the middle between weights Light and Regular. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with tennis balls. Or eggs.

Prop variants have fractions avaialble as OpenType feature [frac], in superior/inferior figures of 2x4 pixels. In the Double there is an addition “constrast-pixel” in some glyphs to fill diagonal holes. They can be removed by OpenType feature [ss05]. In the Book weight the pixels are larger than Light and smaller than Regular, 72/1000 of the EM size. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots.

As all Regular weight pixels exactly match the grid, they are positioned on the base line. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square.

Prop variants have fractions avaialble as OpenType feature [frac], in superior/inferior figures of 2x4 pixels. The Double is how Bitcount started: adding contrast to even the smallest pixel matrix.

The size of Medium Circle pixels, creates automatic natural ink-traps on diagonals.

Prop has the same vertical spacing as Mono. In the Double variant, stems are made from 2 pixels where possible. This simulates the “contrast” of normal letters. As all Bold pixels register on the grid for better alignment in layers with other shapes and weights, they are positioned below the base line, with an overshoot of -28/1000 EM. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square.

The glyphs of Prop variant have their own width, “i” is narrow, “m” and “W” are wide. In Single variants there is an addition “constrast-pixel” in some glyphs to fill diagonal holes. It can be switches on as OpenType feature [ss04]. The Light is almost too light be used by itself. But it can well be used as highlight in combination with other shapes and weights. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square.  All Line pixels have a thickness of 14/1000 EM. This is the exact difference between the weights pixels, causing the inside and outside of lines match up.

The glyphs of Prop variant have their own width, “i” is narrow, “m” and “W” are wide. Different from the Single, does Double not support the condensed OpenType feature, due to the lack of horizontal space. Light weight pixels are the lightest of all 5 weights. Circle pixels suggest better “rounds” and diagonals than Square. Circle pixels can be used to for letters with sushi rolls. Or flower pots. All Line pixels have a thickness of 14/1000 EM.
