Another 50s-themed typeface from my past, Elroy is more interpretive than the rest. Like most of the other early stuff, it was based on some photolettering, but I took it off in its own direction, attempting to make a hand-drawn Bodoni. The spacing is bizarre and many of the stroke weights are inconsistent, but I'd like to go back to this face someday, fix up what's there, and draw a proper text version with Italics, more weights, etc.. Someday... I'd also like to cut down on the ligatures. People do not need a TTY ligature.
