colmspilled the beans

— New work on old numbers. Properly using marks of mid grid structure points, rather than the attributed points on the template.mp
More to come soon, then seeing about the letters, and so-forth.

Colmunwraped

— Numerals! '3' looks a little to cheerful, and not some alt- files still here, decisions need to be made when more comfortable with the entire family of letters in DIN.

Pierre Huyghebaertsaid

— Added scanned documentation, included plates from eighties

- teil4 : the most explicit plates describing the way to draw letters
- teil2 : other plates without construction grid, mostly kerning
- handwritten notes
- Alfphabet + Olyff project (a bit off topic)

— You're hardly surprised to see me commiting are you?
A few uppercase letters to get back into it.

Colmcomplained

— A quick commit befor wrapping up for the day.
I've started mods on the original template, testing out solutions for the issue that Pierre's drawing shows.
I've gone for pin point imitation of the orginals we have, placing the main anchoring points between the points
template.mp sets up.
Plan is to make a proper grid + template rather than half guessing both. A drawing grid, and an off based matrix that works with it, enabeling easy points calling, overall making the drawin process faster,
and easyer. Also the git needs some reorganisation.
Anyway it's friday. BYE!
