I based this font on the unusual lines of letters n, r and k I see on my mum's document folder, since I was old enough to be shown.

In the war my mum was a secretary in hospitals. When she was 21 she made friends with a Hungarian doctor there who helped her deal with the many terrors she saw daily, things most people never realised existed. He helped her survive and became her mentor and protector. He made her a beautiful folder for her documents and letters, from cardboard, kraft paper, inks and obsolete x-ray supports.

He decorated the folder with traditional designs - on the front of this folder he wrote Emlék  ...................  My mum used the folder until she died, just recently. My parents named me in honor of this man. 

This font is in memory of my mother and also of her protective angel whose name I heard too rarely to remember, and sadly my parents never managed to trace him after the war.

Nice work. A few of those quirky letters make the whole text very interesting. I'm sorry for your loss. 10/10

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Emlék” is now a Top Pick.

Kerning and German plus Hungarian diacritics to be done, before making it downloadable. I'll publish a photo of the document folder to show where those unusual glyphs came from.

This font looks pretty nice. Even the quirkiness can make the text interesting…

So sorry about the loss…

Thank you Meek for this star - my mum was great at calligraphy; she used to watch me design and make decorative fonts when I stayed with her. She would be so happy that you thought Emlék is worthy of this honour

@Frodo and others familiar with Magyar : are the diacritics ok, are there ´U+????´ digraphs I've not seen ?

Add lowercase Ő.

@ Hensley Dodson : thank you for spotting that, it's there now :)

Comment by nightpegasus Sat, 31st july

There should be an umlat on top of the capital Ï…

Comment by BWM Sat, 31st july

@BWM : thank you for your comment higher up, and for spotting that Umlaut :)

Comment by nightpegasus Sat, 31st july

I've changed some composites (to reduce unneccessary complexity) and added a few more glyphs. Will think about the @ and % soon
