It's brilliant, i like it a lot! But why did you go with lowercase forms on the uppercase M and N? Also, the ring on “å” is a bit too big.
Thanks! It took some playing around but I finally managed to get a more uppercase form for M and N. I'm still fond of the the err... unicase versions so I threw them in before the f-ligatures. Bear with me, it's a work in progress.
I'm totally digging the crit, by the way, keep 'em coming.
I tried setting some text and played around a bit, it works really well. It's got surprisingly even color considering the limitations, and it's definitively legible. Keep up the good work!

Man...This is cool. An instant classic !
An original and working serif design - AND a large character set! A perfect 10 :)
You guys are gonna make me blush.
So cool that you named this font creation "Queen Mab"!! I actually recognized the reference - stumbled on it while re-reading Shakespeare last week! What inspired the naming convention? Nice job, btw!
Oh it's probably my favorite passage from R&J. Since it's about a tiny fairy queen, I thought it applied well to the tiny pixel-based nature of this fontstruction.
A great FontStruction, and indeed the most aptly and evocatively named.
R&J (Romeo and Juliet) - exactly :) I agree with Meek... great naming convention!
This is the single greatest FontStruction and maybe one of the best typefaces anywhere I have ever seen.
Packed with dynamic tension, Uptake is an exciting and characterful but also eminently usable sans.
