@time.peace, minimum, elmoyenique, blu: thank you for your comments and generous ratings. I added a shadow layer and working on the overlapping problem.

Ah, so a subset of the svelte white hairlines are no longer simply implied via negative space – but a layer of white unto themselves to address the overlapping problem? A clever solution to generating properly shadowed word blocks.

I’m with the rest of the crew here. This is gorgeous!

@ William Leverette (will.i.ૐ): Thank you for your comment. Yes, you've figured it out: the white lines are no longer constituted by negative space but a solid white layer on top of the shadow layer. Without this layer, the grey shadows would overlap with the next glyph. To keep everything simple I didn't recreate the lines themselves. I just made a solid white shape covering the whole coloured area plus the margins. (The colour palette from top to bottom: North #ebada2, East #ce6a6c, West #bed3c4, South #49919d, #ffffff, Shadow #d6d6d6.) 

I wanted to create a font that otherwise would have been impossible to make without the layer/colour function. The next logical step would be a variable font: setting the colours with sliders at will.

What a beautiful development of Gimli Bevel Black. The white lines and shadows add an extra touch of magic.
