Calligraphy Practice Booklet
This is a compilation of a typography exercise called Typecooker starting with 3 "recipes" for typefaces and then sketching letters out according to those recipes. I then chose one sketch and developed it into a typeface using FontLab.
 
Here are the three recipes that I chose:
 
1 width normal
2 weight plain
3 construction roman
4 stroke endings straight, no serif
7 contrast type translation (broad nib)
8 contrast amount low contrast
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1 width condensed 
2 weight book
3 construction roman
4 stroke endings a serif
7 contrast type expansion (pointed nib)
8 contrast amount quite some contrast
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1 width normal
2 weight black
3 construction roman
4 stroke endings a serif
7 contrast type translation (broad nib)
8 contrast amount high contrast
