Usually I can't stand dumb quotes and can't bring myself to include them in the character set. But these ones don't make me want to put my fingers down my throat.

One disadvantage of making things up on the fly is not knowing whether you're onto a winner or not. I was careless with the placement of the lower case downstrokes and then I compounded the problem by using the flip and rotate functions willy-nilly. So now I have a stencil-gap problem that will be a lot of work to fix as well as a spacing inconsistency issue. Where's my rusty razor blade?

i think this is outstanding work. i felt inspired after n.e. did his and cloned this, but ruined the file due to errant copying and pasting of stack/composited bricks. i must say, you employ some hot brick work in the file. i was connecting the stencil. do you have plans to do a variation like that? anyway, great job and you know, sometimes it's those inconsistencies that 'break the grid' and allow imperfection and humanity into this modular world.

Powerful and awe-inspiring blend of stencil and fat gothic(?) styles. The quotation marks are great. Any numbers? 10/10

The way you use the quote/comma shape as your Q’s tail – in fact, everything about that letter – is quite beautiful.

I feel like your r could have a fatter arm/terminal...but this is always a tricky ordeal in fontstruct. How about “overlapping” a larger, more diamond (quote-like) shape in such a way that the stencil line has to cut slightly back into the fat vertical stroke to keep the forms distinct?

Thanks everybody for your comments. This is the first one I've done for a while where I've thought the mad glyphs still manage to fit in.
@will.i.ૐ: Yes you're right. There might be room to beef it up slighly without crashing into the other letters, I'll have to check when I get home from work. f and r are right bastards. I tend to compensate for them by offsetting everything else, right from the start.
@funk_king: I don't think I can face trying to make all the joins marry harmoniously. What would I do about the differences -- say -- between the c and a?
@frodo7: yes, numerals to follow, though I dread doing them.

Hi, master: I'm late to the font. I have been trying to fill the central hollow of some glyphs in the lc because I do not quite were in line with the rest of the other glyphs, but I think you've solved a better way. Anyway, I dare to attach my small efforts. Great font, congrats!

It makes for an interesting and more consistent alternate. When I've finished it I'll do another one with these revisions. Cheers!

In fact, why don't you finish your example instead, now that I've done the upper case. I think I've got vampyric themes out of my system just for now.

Congrats for the TP, maestro!
Well, I've made this work only like a sample, not to create a new font, you must stay sure about this at this point. This idea was finished, and I let right now the playground. (But it was very delightful.) Cheers!

@Intaglio :At last i had the courage to rethink and rework in a more satisfying way my font inspired by Wallachia. I hope you'll like this brand new evolution, much more sophisticated.

...and it is residing where? Have you posted it yet? Letters from Transylvania take a little longer, I know.
