ARS NOUVEAUX - Art Nouveau inspired display typeface
A personal digital reimagination of the lettering style by "Charles Rennie Mackintosh" (1868-1928), a pioneer of the "Glasgow School of Art" and so called "Arts & Crafts" movement.
His distinctive style of lettering has been seen many revisions, revivals, reimaginations and inspired designs alike over the years, and has evolved into a broad collection of available fonts.
This basic stylistic lettering concept from Mackintosh sort-of losely funcioned as the structural guiding principle for the creation of "Ars-Nouveaux".  
This FontStruction is an experimentation into creating similar flavored, but still unique letterforms within that same design framework.
First I started to layout the overall basic asymmetrical core geometry from a set of custom rectangles, half arc's and slants for each of the letters bare skeleton shape. Once I completed the full set of 36 glyphs [a/z, 0/9] These basic shaped were then further modified into more sophisticated finalized letterforms.

Caps-only, but with many alternates, accompanied by a set of ornate initials.

Hope you like it,

Thanks pal, and yeah I can imagine this being right up your alley with the low/high waste design. 😄

Fantastic design! The ex-libris in the style of Aubrey Beardsley has been very cool. And it's difficult to choose among the large number of variations of some letters. Congrats.
