Nice. A friendly chunky blackletter - a chunkletter.
Comment by afrojet 24th november 2008
Really interesting!

I think there are some issues with letterspacing (the space between a and b for example) but the letterform design is really brilliant.
Comment by Em42 24th november 2008
@Em42: you are right there are some problems with the spacing, but unfortunaly i don't know how to solve this. each letter has one unit space on the left side of the stems. i believe the little peaks cause this effect.

are there any suggestions how to solve it?
Comment by Ixel 24th november 2008
Unfortunately only the left side bearing can be set in FontStruct, not the right one: that's why letters with the peaks on the right have a (visually) larger right side bearing.

Anyway Rob Meek announced elsewhere that the control for the right side bearing is near, so it will be possible to solve this problem soon.
Comment by Em42 24th november 2008
@Em42 ... nearER (than kerning support) = sooner than possibly never. it'll be a while yet — weeks rather than days. i like this FontStruction a lot as well by the way and i can see that support for an adjustable RSB would really help.

Pink dottable, at least. Some of them glyphs are irresistible. s, x, z,c...
Comment by intaglio 24th november 2008
Very well done, I’d like to see the Caps.
Comment by wolfkrim 25th november 2008
Beautiful work, Ixel.

And Rob, upcoming control of the right sidebearing makes me salivate, too!
Comment by SquarePeg 25th november 2008
The finished thing is just superb.
Comment by intaglio 29th november 2008
Wonderfully crafted! A beaut.
Comment by Karolina Lach (sliveress) 30th november 2008
Nicely done. At smaller sizes, I think the lowercase "o" may be too similar to the "a", but other than that you've built a nice consistency throughout.
