This is the second half of Prometheus Regular Shadow, which was inspired by a typeface from the French type foundry Peignot. Identified as "No. 1229" in their Lettres Fantaises of 1896, it sports a very fine side shadow, which I've attempted to re-create here. (I found the "No. 1229" sample on Hoefler & Frere-Jones' blog - fifth image from the top.)

This FontStruction is split in two to make downloading possible. The Basic Set features all of the Basic Latin and More Latin characters, while the Extended Set (this half) has all of the Extended Latin A and several Extended Latin B characters (Latin-based diacritics for the Central European, West European, Baltic, and Romanian languages, plus special characters for Croatian, Slovenian, and Livonian, among others).

For some reason, I'm having trouble downloading this one... Perhaps it's too big. :-(

Update: Probably due to the recent updates made to FontStruct, this FontStruction now downloads without a hitch. Hooray!

Another update: I've improved lowercase characters like a, c, e, and z (as I did with the other weights of Prometheus).

A minor update: as I did with the first half of Prometheus Regular Shadow, I just fixed the hairlines of certain diacritics that I had drawn as drop shadows instead of side shadows.
