A semi connected script style font design. It is losely based in the lettering seen on a poster design by German designer/painter Ottomar Carl Joseph Anton. (image shown in comments)

I completed the full alphabet, I tried to incorporate the features from the provided letters the best I could while creating the remaining missing characters.

It is a semi connected script style lettering, so certain characters are deliboratly disconnect and some aren't. For example the Uppercase string is almost completelty disconnected, whereas most of the lowercase characters connect. This can also be seen in the original Ottomar poster.

For the lowercase characters that connect there has been made a alternative glyph that is disconnected and adjusted to make a more pleasing flow and better looking breaks. These are located in the Unicode Block “Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms”.

It contains both proportional oldstyle (default) & lining numerals, which are located in the Unicode Block “Halfwidth and Fullwidth Forms” as well.

I hope you like it!

cheers

Nice.  Real nice.  I really like it.  I don't know if you already know (you might), but Word has trouble grabbing characters from Halfwidths and Fullwidths, for some reason.  That said, it is not a fault of the font, but Word itself and hopefully Microsoft will correct that oversight.

@ SymbioticDesign I did not know this.. thanks for telling me mate. I might relocate them to another unicode range soon...

The font got updated as well:

* Many new characters added, more will follow.

I still think it's the best place for most alternates, and it is only Microsoft that seems to have this issue, so I wouldn't worry about it so much.  But at least you know about it.  I am sure a new version will address the problem, Microsoft is usually pretty darn serious about fonts and supporting them.
