Top Speed Version 1.41 Released as Shareware December 1997 Copyright 1997 Jason Vanderhill Top Speed is inspired by a certain metal badge seen on the flanks of the finest coachbuilt automobiles in the world. It is a complete alphabet, albeit all lower case at the moment, based on the letters p, i, n, f, a, and r. Top Speed Version 1.41 is currently available as shareware. For $10, you are entitled to a single-user licence for Top Speed Normal, Top Speed Outline, and Top Speed Heavy.

The most distinctive feature of Top Speed is the fact that all the letterforms are connected to each other. To maintain this look, all the characters have tails. The forward-slash character (and underline character) can be inserted between words instead of using the space bar, maintaining the continuous baseline. The back-slash character is a somewhat shorter connector; the '|' key is a slightly longer connector. To begin your word or line of text, you should insert a small version of the baseline, which is the "<" character.="" this="" will="" start="" off="" your="" type="" with="" an="" appropriate="" "tail."="" to="" finish="" off="" your="" line="" of="" type,="" use="" the="" "="">" character, as it will end your tail at the appropriate distance. These characters are more necessary in the Outline version of the font. Top Speed may require minor kerning adjustment with some characters. Because each letter must be placed EXACTLY next to the following letter, (Top Speed Normal and Heavy are slightly more forgiving) you might notice a sliver appear between an occasional pair of letters. There are no differences in the capital letters except for the letter F. The capital letter F does not continue along the baseline, but instead it can run into certain letters (typically, the a, o, or u) through it's horizontal crossed stroke. The Outline version of the capital F contains an extra bit of black. This fills up the "hole" left at the beginning of the next character. If the capital F is used to end a word or sentence using Top Speed Outline, that little speck will have to somehow be creatively covered up. Top Speed is my first computer designed typeface. It was created completely in CorelDraw 7. Since this was my first font, I did stumble through the whole process a bit, and as a result, it does contain the odd imperfection. For example, I am not sure how to get my apostrophes and quotation marks to work. Currently, the null character is inserted instead. In a way, it's a bit of a handmade product. I began the font in the spring, basically ignored it all summer, and then finished it in the fall. Mostly, it has been fun. I hope you enjoy it. ___________________________________ The typeface name 'Top Speed' has been registered at the Goudy International Typeface Center in Rochester, New York, 1997.
