@time.peace, jirinvk: Thank you for your comments.

@elmoyenique: Well, you have keen eyes. I wouldn't call them serifs for they are so tiny. Just to make sure we talk about the same thing I attached an illustration. Cheers.

Congtats on this new TP, maestro! 100% with what I call your "subtle serifs" (not "sherifs", my English is disastrous, you know). It is a very elegant idea that I hope to copy from you soon ...

@Rob Meek: Thank you very much for the special mention.

@elmoyenique: The sheriff was the top law enforcement officer of the shire (in medieval England).

Ooops. Sorry for the duplicate post, I have problems with the internet connection. (@meek: Could you delete one of them please?)

Thanks, Boss.

This is amazing. The angular cuts makes it look like it was cut with scissors out of paper. The sawtooth separation of the left and right stems is genius, hinting at both stems yet keeping the inside connected. The block of text reads so well. Amazing work, as usual.

@elmoyenique: It`s the really good idea to make a tiny-serif typeface in the style of old wood fonts like this one, maybe. Hopefully it will include Cyrillic ;)

@Frodo7: This is a very nice and clean font, despite the rough style. It seems that it is simple, but in fact a lot of effort has been invested in it. My 10 to you. Hopefully Miik will one day move the favorites button to a different location so that unintentional haters don't appear.

Of course I meant Rob Meek, not Miik, i am sorry

@thalamic: Thank you for your comment. The "cut with scissors out of paper" is a good description. I started this font three years ago with the lower case. For some reason, I couldn't make the capitals right until now. I tested different versions of G and H without deep cuts, but they were not legible. I tried other, better-looking versions of f, j, t, and y; they didn't work well together in the text. When I finally arrived at the current versions, I thought it was a big deal. I'm glad we share the same enthusiasm.

@Dmitriy Sychiov (Sychoff): Thank you for your comment. The Cyrillic set is on the table, we'll see how it goes.
