Fimbriae is apparently irretrievable - so this is the latest incarnation, largely faithful to the original. I'm not yet happy with the V and W, but I need to step back for a while. As always, hints and suggestions are most welcome.

With some generous spacing adjustments, it can look fairly decent. The sage advice is due to my predicament at the time of completion.

Some of the letter shapes are just gorgeous; g q x and & are beyond gorgeous; text block is a nice even gray. Although I'm not sure you need those notches on the b d h k and l, it's an interesting quirk to leave in. Love it.

As thal says there are some beautiful characters here. I don't quite understand why the numbers are so much smaller than the Caps ... I tried my Post Code and it looked a wee bit odd.

Thanks guys - I see what you mean about the numbers though. I'd started to increase them by one square in each axis, but I still don't think that's enough - I'll have to resume that task at a later date. To be continued...

I could only repeat what others wrote above: beautiful work. And now comes the less sexy part, to meticulously adjust and polish the glyphs to perfection. 10/10

Nice g! And these are lovely ball terminals; specially in the n, a very exquisite detail.

Really good set here, chr.s. I specifically like the letter forms of the lowercase, like that smooth g.
