I could stare at typefaces for hours on end. Everything from their curves, swoops, sexy calligraphic lines, to the personalities — doesn’t the OneLeigh ‘g’ look sad and crumbled below? — that draw me in for a closer look. I enjoy everything about them!
While spending time in awe looking at type specimen sheets, there is usually one character sticks out for me —the lowercase letter g, especially those with closed or partially closed loops (also known as a double story).
With swooping necks, quaint ears and abstract loops, the lowercase g has become a beautiful character to fall in love with, and type designers have been creating some extremely lovely and mesmerizing ones for years. Below are a 30+ standout (below the baseline) lowercase g’s for your viewing pleasure.
What’s your favorite lowercase g? Have one that’s not included? Please share in the comments below.
