These drop caps are just gorgeous! All the more impressive considering the 45° angle constraint. Well done.
One suggestion: flip the U horizontally. The current form reads, but that spur on the left side feels out of place to me. Will flipping break the polish of the design motif too much? Perhaps another solution can be found without adding too many novel rules just for the one character...
A simple Black. Nice work
love the lowercase as well... well balanced.
Thank you for the kind words! :-)
Caps were the hardest ones (which I think it’s the norm with blackletters ;-)
After some struggle, I’m pretty satisfied with the stencil-like result.
About the U, you’re right (especially comparing it with lowercase u and v). I haven’t just flipped it for the reason you already guessed.
I will experiment further.
(Though I’m not sure I can change it during the competition’s review time)
Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Amanuensis” is now a Top Pick.
Thank you for the Top Pick!
I suppose that means I now need to get serious about proper punctuation and language support... ;-)
Somehow I managed to miss this beautiful creation when it was released, but I'm very happy to see it now. Great work! 10/10.
A beautifully executed modular blackletter with extraordinary filigree around the caps. Usable despite the small character set.
