Yes! Sorry I didn't make that clearer - the MA Typeface Design
schedule I posted about is for a "text typeface" - something you can
read a novel with - and "display type" is the kind of type that would
be weird to use in a novel. Those _can_ take just as long, though: Ed
Interlocking is a great proprietary font that took a _long_ time to
make, as is Zapfino...
