I.K. Bonset was the pseudonym that Theo van Doesburg used to publish Dada poetry in his magazine De Stijl.

This FontStruction is loosely based on van Doesburg's alphabet of 1919. I have not followed his strict grid of 25 x 25 (unlike Freda Sack and David Quay's revival, Architype Van Doesburg, or P22's De Stijl Regular) -- in other words, some of my caps and numerals deviate from van Doesburg's original design. Also, I've added a lower case and diacritics (which I am currently updating).

I like this, apart from the letter V.

Thanks; glad you like it! Theo van Doesburg's original letter V was a bit wider -- actually, the entire alphabet was wider than what I've done here.

Update: I doubled the grid resolution of Bonset, to solve some letter-spacing issues. Here is a before-and-after screenshot of the letter c.
