Inspired by trying to thread heddles on a 4-shafter .........
The design uses a lot of nudging, a little stacking and composites, using some of the exciting extended capabilities of the FontStructor.
The font's name is Maori and means "weaving".
This font is as finished as I need to have it at the moment. I'll add a few more glyphs later.
Blackletter, as small as possible, as elegant as possible.
Fun fact: The name Minotur came from the shortening of "minimal textur".
I started this typeface out with the letter 'a', and from there slowly build up the other glyphs and came to realise it looks like a festive type. It's most likely due to the terminals being very angular and sharp, and that thought strengthens ever more so after I tried using it in Adobe Illustrator.
