Since we’ve been so involved with page design and layout with large amounts of body text in both Type I and II, drop caps are on my mind... gorgeous, dramatic drop caps with lots of impact and contrast. So, I created a typeface that could provide me with the ultimate condensed drop cap, with great contrast between the thick and thin strokes. It’s a little bit reminiscent of the logo for the Dessau Bauhaus, which is, frankly, a happy accident. The name is just for fun. Whenever you don’t know what to call something, just add “o-rama” to the end and it will immediately be funny.

This is great. Well worth expanding the character set I think (e.g. punctuation, accented characters)

Thanks. I will definitely add more characters. I'm thinking of changing the name to Dessau. Any thoughts?
