By hand, since I came to Géarthnuns long before I came to computers. The original has a very Frakturish feel (vive le Fraktur!!!). Print and cursive forms are definitely influenced by my own hand. The computer-friendly form was then back-derived therefrom. And now we can delve into serif and sans serif forms. Kou
