From Paul Shaw: Having crit­i­cized most existing letter­form termi­nology diagrams it seems only fair that I show what I use. These sheets were begun a few years ago for my SVA students but I have never found the time to polish them. Since they don’t yet have any arrows, circles or coloration to indi­cate exactly what is being described I have added some commen­tary. Please excuse the missing exam­ples and other glitches. Perhaps this post will spur me to finish them. · Go to Thoughts on letter­form nomen­cla­ture →
