By the Numbers no. 1 addendum
An Italian friend has pointed out that John Morgan’s Nizioleti typeface (alphabet?) includes numerals that have no basis in actual Venetian examples. In his opinion they are “molto inautentici e fuori posto.” He is absolutely right. Here is the John Morgan character set with some Venetian figures below it for comparison.
It should be noted that Morgan’s letters also deviate from those in Venice. Yet, I still find his alphabet quite beautiful. (And I love the “fletching” of the arrow.)
