Taking advantage of the advanced ratio controls, this is a slightly more open serif typeface. This is one step closer to my goal of making a legible text face in FontStruct. Oldstyle figures.

It's brilliant, i like it a lot! But why did you go with lowercase forms on the uppercase M and N? Also, the ring on “å” is a bit too big.
Comment by Kottis 6th April 2008
Thanks! It took some playing around but I finally managed to get a more uppercase form for M and N. I'm still fond of the the err... unicase versions so I threw them in before the f-ligatures. Bear with me, it's a work in progress.

I'm totally digging the crit, by the way, keep 'em coming.

I tried setting some text and played around a bit, it works really well. It's got surprisingly even color considering the limitations, and it's definitively legible. Keep up the good work!

Man...This is cool. An instant classic !

An original and working serif design - AND a large character set! A perfect 10 :)

You guys are gonna make me blush.

So cool that you named this font creation "Queen Mab"!! I actually recognized the reference - stumbled on it while re-reading Shakespeare last week! What inspired the naming convention? Nice job, btw!

Oh it's probably my favorite passage from R&J. Since it's about a tiny fairy queen, I thought it applied well to the tiny pixel-based nature of this fontstruction.
Comment by bent hamm 13th April 2008
A great FontStruction, and indeed the most aptly and evocatively named.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 14th April 2008
R&J (Romeo and Juliet) - exactly :) I agree with Meek... great naming convention!

This is the single greatest FontStruction and maybe one of the best typefaces anywhere I have ever seen.
