Description:
Named for the composer of music for Sergio Leone's "Spaghetti Westerns".

Steeper diagonals achieved by setting vertical scaling to 2. Alternate A, V, and W with overshooting apexes. Alt S without serifs. Figures on the way.

Still needs work, especially on the K and Z. Suggestions welcome.

Here's a showing.

Stewf, unfortunately I can’t set the “Reward” poster without any numerals … ;)

Update:
- Improved space width.
- Added basic punctuation.
- Added subtle curves to counters on round shapes like the G, P, B. Not sure about this one, let me know what you think.

Oh don't worry about copying. This style was around long before either of us.

To scale your bricks open the "Filters" palette from the "Advanced" menu.

I love this! I wanted to use it for title credits for a film submission (a western-action!) for a festival, but Suitcase won't let me load it. :(

Hmm, Suitcase can be extra sensitive. Try installing it manually in your fonts folder.

Oops, I have *no* idea why that reposted—I'm sorry for the double post!

Thank you for your quick response, Stewf! That worked! I almost asked you about all the letters and then realized I need to turn on the CAPS. :P

Thanks again! I can't wait to show the director. :)

I'd love to see it too! By the way, this font has an attribution non-commercial license. But I'll grant you permission if I can get a credit in the film.

Oh! So sorry...I should've asked if a submission to a film festival would be commercial. Eep! I will definitely properly ask you for permission and attribute credit if the director chooses this typeface. Thank you so much! :)
