very stylish, very compact looking, simply awesome font!
I like especially your decision for "j", "f" and "R". Also that "r" and "s" are sweetness.

@kix: My method to create a typeface does not change no matter how I try. I do one character, and the rest just follow the inherent rules laid out by that one character. Thanks for liking it.

@williaum: Some fonts just come together without much effort. I wasn't going to do the uppercase, thinking they wouldn't really join up well. Then, just on a whim, I decided to try out the 'A'. "That worked. Hmmm... Can I do the same for 'B'? OK." Etc., etc. Then, later I went back and tweaked all lowercases to match the new-found uppers. I am pleased with the way this font turned out. Thanks.

It's magic isn't it, when you're onto something and the bricks just fall into place one after another, and it's like you're sleepwalking through it. There's a sweet inevitability about this font that makes it really poetic.

So simple but so enticing. Great way to fuse the cursive touch with little squares

@intaglio: Poetic? Wow...that is one sweet compliment. Thank you. As for the magic--it really was. Everything just fit, like a jigsaw puzzle where every piece you picked up was exactly the one you needed next.

@memoorange: Thanks. Aren't paradoxes wonderful!? :)

@afrojet: :D

@williaum: Clone away!...and dot-ted.

Very, very elegant!
‹Poetic› is the word.

I like best:
+ the per cent glyph
+ the ampersand
+ the discription

Thank you, guentersen. The font gods were with me on this one. I'm glad you liked the &. It was the most difficult character to get right.

A wonderful interpretation of the dots-defining-lines concept!

It deserves the top ten list.
