FONTLOG for the Kaushan Script fonts
This file provides detailed information on the Kaushan Script
This information should be distributed along with the Kaushan fonts
and any derivative works.
Basic Font Information
When making digital typefaces, the more you refine the shapes of
the letters, the more energy you take away from them. Because of
that, Kaushan Script is unrefined - and carries a lot of energy.
By avoiding typographical perfection, it stays more natural.
The angles of the vertical strokes vary a little, and the
positioning along the baseline jumps around, giving it a more
rustic and natural feeling.
Most script fonts have long ascenders and descenders, and this
means they look too small when used at normal sizes on the web.
This font is optimized in the technical details to be very
readable as a web font, even when used as small as 16 pixels.
It was funded by people like you, via Kickstarter.
The name "Kaushan" was suggested by Vyacheslav Kaushan,
one of the project backers.
Special thanks to the project backers! They are all listed on
the website: http://www.impallari.com/Kaushan
