"I don't know what I am. I don't know if I am or not. Jewel knows he is, because does not know that he does not know whether he is or not. He cannot empty himself for sleep because he is not what he is and he is what he is not... and since sleep is is-not and rain and wind are was, it is not... Yet the wagon is, because when the wagon is was, Addie Bundren will not be."

Disappointingly, my newly-designed Lit Crit Medium font looks if anything slightly more elegant than the original handwriting from which it was derived. I was hoping to recapture some of the original's drawn-left-handed-in-blood quality. Admittedly I'm lacking a number of capital letters too. I'm also trying to think of a way to provoke the author into scrawling numbers. At present, I'm limited to Roman numerals. Mostly in lower case, too.
I suppose completing a font is very much like collecting stickers for the old Panini sticker albums. Except that you can't swap letters with your mates to complete the set. Or send off for the last fifty. Hmmm.
