This is a collection of letterforms chosen for their looks and not historical correctness, making a (hopefully) wonderful anachronism. I am still a bit undescided about some forms, such as the c and t (are they too plain?) and the x (is it too foreign?). Please pitch in with ideas.
The name "Eerie" I have chosen, because it is one of my favourite words of the English language. It consists of only common letters, but their combination is strange: So many vowels for one consonant, initial double e, final ie. A more "English" way to spell it would be "eary", but that, of course, would have another meaning. Even the sound of it is like a creaking door, making it very self descriptive.
