Beautiful start intaglio. I love the e, g, k, and the y.

Comin' on nicely.
Comment by djnippa 23rd January 2010
Well it wouldn't be an Intaglio if it didn't have those quirks now would it? If I were a real font psychologist (instead of just playing one on TV), I would diagnose Elvira with Multi-Serif Personality Disorder. And yet, I think she wears the disorder very well.

It'll be interesting to see if she can withstand the same treatment in the uppercase.
Comment by afrojet 23rd January 2010
Actually, I don't think it's quirky at all. It's distinctive, but not quirky. Even though, the e is a neat little glyph which I'm loving in isolation, it seems to stand out a bit much from the rest. Maybe you can use it as a basis of the stencil version of this gem.

As usual, minimum, you're bang-on. That e is a little bit too frisky...
@afrojet: exactly. I've been avoiding the caps because I'm pessimistic. Cowardly, I know.

Congratulations! FontStruct Staff have deemed your FontStruction worthy of special mention. “Elvira” is now a Top Pick.
Comment by afrojet 4th February 2010
Thanks for the top pick! I've been dead but recently resurrected. My crap-of-an-H.P.-machine bit the dust again and the service bureau have been dragging the chain because I'm right at the end of its extended warranty period. Best $200 I ever spent. It's well and truly a Friday machine.

Very sturdy and robust, intaglio. Beautifully previewed in the new sub-PXL zoom levels. Uppercase pleeeease.

Damn, should have started on a finer grid scheme. It's a tricky juggle: economy or utility?
