Frakture was a project for a typography class. The intention was to create a medium blackletter typeface that can be use for display. A lot of work is left to be done.

Looks very promising. I am really looking forward to the rest of the upper case. 10/10

This is fabulous – one of the best Frakturs in FontStruct so far (and there are several good ones!), in my humble opinion. Please do continue.

Looks superb. Lot of work ahead, but keep going.
Is it based on anything in particular?

This is amazing work - all the more so for being a first FontStruction.

I noticed that you have come up against the usual problem of joining certain combinations of bricks. Well help is at hand ... djnippa has created a most useful guide to 'brick stacking' - http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/ncd_brick_stacker_one_grid

To show you the value of this I have done a sample of your E, with the brick stacked version on the right -


Hope this helps :)

Thanks everyone for the support. I will keep working on it for sure.

The suggestion about brick stacking is great, p2pnut. I will sure be using this technique.

Does anyone have a suggestion to which capital letters I should tackle next?
Comment by PJKC 4th November 2009
Glad that helped ... where nippa leads, we humbly follow :)

As to which U/C to do next - I tend to go for ones that have some common feature with other glyphs, so that I can copy them (save so much time). So, with a more standard font, I might start with the O as that gives me elements to use on C, D and Q. Then I often do the B which gives me the basis for the E, F, P, R and so on. However, with an ornate font like this, that process has a far more limited application ... so I would just go for the ones I enjoy doing at the time :)
