2x2 schemes are all very well but they magnify the spacing issues x2 as well. Along with the usual "f"ing question it comes unstuck where I've added half-width bricks at the start or end of a glyph. Oh well. Trouble is my middle name.

    Looks great at pixel resolution. Having visited Timaru a few years back I'm intrigued by your choice of name.

    No special significance -- I'm just a magpie for beautiful words.

    I'm eager to see what the numbers and other symbols look like!

    Simple and smooth, intaglio. Can you elaborate on the spacing issues? I believe spacing at 2x2 is better than the standard setting.

    @jimhv: I'm not very good at completing the whole character set. I haven't managed to sustain the interest for many of my fonts, getting discouraged or losing patience.

    That's why I use the "open slather" licensing scheme so anyone who gets fed-up waiting for me to finish can extend the set him/herself. (If anyone cares that much!)

    I will do the numerals and punctuation at least, though. But just now I've been seduced by another font I've started work on. It happens a lot...

    @geneus1: I don't know. I see other people's designs that are economical and they don't seem to have the issues I have. I'm going down the garden to eat worms.

    I had sworn off doing gigantic 'Structions but I've come to the conclusion I seem able to execute things better on a big (1x1) scale. The one I'm working on at the moment is a pain because it's so big but everything works better for me. It looks great at whatever size I view it at and the spacing is a lot finer.

    I guess it's just personal preference. I admire the designs I see that are economical and beautiful too, but I'm not so crash-hot at them myself!

    Excellent! Very readable at smal sizes...
    One of the things I admire from you is your so different approach from others 'fontstructors'
    Fresh and stimulating!

    Thanks, Alex! It's taking me a while to get back to the site because my home computer is dead. Sniff...

    The tail of J could extend below base line.
