I love the traditional French "Petit Beurre" biscuits made in Nantes on the French west coast where the Loire meets the Atlantic.

The biscuits are thin, crunchy, light, not too large, not very sweet, melt on the tongue, and biscuits very like the original can be made/baked quite easily.

The original biscuits have a limited range of letters, enough to write the name of the town, the factory and the type.

I spent some time looking at other type of the Victorian/Art Nouveau era until I had collected enough information to help me design the missing letters. I added the French diacritics (naturally ;) ) I think my additions look successful.

The square brackets [ and ] make a biscuit shape when used 'blank'.

Bon appetit, enjoy your "Biscuit de l'Ouest".

Looks delicious!

Thank you Mr Meek. The best aspect about this font: you save a cool 440 kcal per 100 grams of letters ;)

Comment by Aeolien 14th June 2016

Added basic punctuation and French diacrititcs as promised. Now the square brackets side by side give a biscuit shape for extra crunch. The parent font with extended character sets will soon be available for commercial work.

I have aligned spurs and crossbars (not on 5,6,9), changed the crossbar serifs (e,f), and changed the width of m,p,r,w,0,8. Are there any other problem areas?

Tasty and ornate glyphs, also love the outline biscuit dingbat.

Comment by four 7th July 2016

Thank you four :) I am working on a few more 'biscuits' to add.

Comment by Aeolien 9th July 2016

I placed the letters on the base line and lowered other glyphs. There was no logic in keeping all glyphs at the height for use with the crunchy version's UC ;)
