Little experiment of mine, trying to design a script font that really connects all the letters. As you might guess from the quality of the uppercase, I started with lowercase and had quite some trouble finishing the uppercase... And I know there are (obviously) always the connection strokes peaking out at the end any word, but funnily this imperfect look has started to grow on me during the fontstructing.

I also know there are still lots and lots of inconsistencies and letters that badly need a rework, but I thought the constructive criticism of my fellow fonstructors might be more helpful and efficient at improving this... So I'm grateful for any suggestions!:)

Oh, and yes: The kerning is very painful at times, but I can't see how I can improve that under the constraints of the script and the character forms. And obviously the script thing doesn't work with uppercase only text.


Ho la la la la !
what a neat and beautiful font

I felt in love with it right away. Bravo!

T'es vraiment fort Shasta!

From my point of view, Kerning with only Uppercase is not a problem. Many Pro font have the same approach with Fancy Script Uppercase

Really sweet and professional looking font. 10/10.

I can't believe it's still script. It's serif - but sans, it's gothic - but script. 10 stars and fav.

Wow. A blackletter script. Now there's something you don't see everyday. I like the tension inherit in the forms as they struggle to find balance between modularity and fluidity. Nice job.

Great achievement in adding some playfulness to a blackletter font!

The only weak point I can detect is the linking in the F, P and Y letters: I know it's a tricky issue myself in modular connected script font, but using a fake bezier curve is like surrendering to the challenge.

Such an excellent result ... a very successful experiment indeed! 10/10

I love this font! It is absolutely amazing. May I suggest, however, that you add more punctuation? Personally I feel that it's a bit of a shame that you don't have an exclamation mark, question mark, semicolon, colon, apostrophes and all those other lovely things in there.
