Congratulations to Nordine for his wonderful font The Copyst which I think is beautiful.
I have a particular affection for the treble key and the bass key which I find splendid.
Everything is beautifully drawn.
Congratulations also for the text font The Copyst Number and in particular the one for the fingerings.

A new reference for jazz fonts SMUFL.
I enclose a screenshot of one of my works with this sumptuous font.

I spent 30 years playing in theatre pits and, as soon as I saw this, nostalgia kicked in. Fantastically realistic and crystal clear.

Who would have thought a font could bring back such happy memories…

@Beechside Thanks for the compliment and glad that my design brings back happy memories for you. Actually Font Design is an Art just like jazz or any other art.

@NorFonts , I like your fonts and I’m thinking about buying this and/or other fonts. I noticed quite a big difference in price between the Dorico and the Sibelius/Finale versions. There is problably a good reason for this?
Any plans on a Dorico fonts bundle?

@HeiPet Thanks for your interest, the difference is simple, The Copyist fonts for Finale & Sibelius are the same ones (unSMuFL’d), featuring only 347 glyphs, while the SMuFL font for Dorico is featuring almost 1388 glyphs.

I’m planing to make a Dorico fonts bundle in the future.
