    The monolinear script on this cover design for Pantheon Books is based on an early version of  MeMimas, the Spanish school script typeface by Type-Ø-Tones. The most striking discrepancies between the initial release from 1991 and the current version (v 3.3, 2007) can be found in the ‘S’, which used to be more upright, and the ‘W’, which is less straight-sided now.

    In addition to the thread-like joins, Barbara deWilde also customized the ‘T’, because in MeMimas, this letter takes on a form that is barely recognizable as such to non-Spanish eyes.

    Here’s another (unrelated) use of MeMimas where the unfamiliar cursive ‘T’ with crossbar has been avoided, too. In that case, it has been replaced with the simplified glyph from MeMimas Alternate.
