    GlyphCollector is a desktop application for typeface revival projects both as a production and research tool.

    The tool is meant for collecting multiple representations of glyphs from a scanned page and for subsequently generating an average image. One has to select one glyph of each character that has to be converted. Next GlyphCollector will gather all characters for which it finds a reference and will put these per character in a folder. Subsequently for all selected characters an average glyph is calculated and converted to outline. The goal is that GC will distill the original spacing from the prints in question and converts the outlines directly to an OpenType font. This makes it a great tool for creating a solid basis for digital revivals but also for researching historic prints.
