You may not even read this period.

 

But it’s beautiful. It’s not accidentally beautiful. It was designed to be beautiful. By someone who knows you don’t see it. They know that your eyes read a pause not a period. You don’t notice the detail of the design. Look at what you don’t see. The space around it was also considered. Look at the way it curves. Imagine it curving in the exact degree of the other 160 characters from this typeface, in the same way that everyone in your family has the same nose. Why is it worth noticing the least noticeable character in the English language? Because the designer of this typeface noticed it. They noticed it for hours and days as they meticulously crafted it, making sure they got the period perfect. If they spent hours on a dot that no one looks at, how much time do you think went into designing these letters?
