A big, fat, funky font to use only at huge sizes!
I had the original concept for this one a while ago, but was not satisfied with the dots on the i and j, so I tweaked the filters a bit to set them at the same height as the ascends.
I recommend using it at really big sizes so it won't lose detail, since letter spacing is so narrow to balance the dot distance.
Only Spanish Glyphs LC so far, plus some basic punctuation.
21.07.09 redesigned all numbers plus e,f,s,z,$ and added fi, fl and & (sounds redundant, huh?^_^)
23.07.09 expanded it some more...

Nice one.

This is one of the more useable 'blocky' fontstructions I've seen... in my opinion anyway. I could see this being used heavily in music promotion - posters, record sleeves etc.

Good work.

This is cool. Love the sample. The sample makes me think that it would be fun/funny if this fontstruction was called Macro Boldly, like a detective from the 1950s. :-)

I made some improvements to it:
Some radial blur inside the title & a lens flare to add a 2001 touch.
I'm glad you like it.
Maybe Mr Boldy joined the space race before sputnik?
