why must J always be so awkward

Conscious design choices:

  • Ə's unstraight bar
  • ɑ and its variants only have one serif

Extend this.
Comment by minidonut 4th January 2015
This is very interesting! Very nice old style aesthetic. I have rated this 10/10 and fave'd it, and I would also like to see it extended. Funny, how you prioritized IPA and Blackletter forms over simple diacritics :P Speaking of -- maybe the blackletter forms would do well as its own sister font?
Comment by Christian Munk (CMunk) 6th January 2015
I get sidetracked easily (^_^;) (I don't think I have the creativity to split off the blackletter)

Nice font!

Comment by spider257 16th October 2016

Nice, Can you finish up this, its kind of a bother to see an incomplete font.

Comment by Brynda 30th April 2017

I don't know why this font makes me smile, maybe because it reminds me of my old typewriter font. It looks quite complete as glyphs are for more than the main international languages.

Comment by Aeolien 30th April 2017

@Brynda: I'm not making this font for you. Get lost.

Comment by Umbreon126 Fri, 8th September

Brynda: explain "a bother". Demanding the complete glyph set is disrespectful, requesting additional glyphs often gives results. Accept FontStructors and their right to make fonts for themselves.

Comment by Aeolien Fri, 8th September

I love how characters from different languages just blend right in with each other.

Comment by thalamic Fri, 8th September

Ha, to J, and its awkwardness. I love explaining to people how J is literally an I with a tail, i.e., it's an iotified I, or palatized I. The fact that so many designers make J the same height as the rest of the capitals annoys me. It has always had a desender, until Times that is, or somewhere around that era. I blame the French. :) I love this font. by the way.

@Aeo Seeing an incomplete font on a professional font site kind of bothers me...

@Umbreon126 Please dont say that on a professional site. Would you say that in front of an audience?

Comment by Brynda Fri, 8th September

Which professional sites sell this font, Brynda? Nobody is so blinkered as to not check if the font they need for work has all required glyphs. Since 1991 people find +dozens of fonts in the 3W.

@Brynda: Tell me why you think it's important to say "I can't type your username on a Wii!" first.

Comment by Umbreon126 Sat, 9th September

I dispair, someone is "bothered by" this stylish flawless extensive fit-for-purpose font? Its suitability for many language cultures, an appealing structure and typographic understanding are so obvious.

I don't give a shit. No one gives a shit. Go away.

Easy to read even when it is small, it looks good in most texts. To young members criticizing older fonts, don't think you are FS typography guides, skilled artists, intelligent, kind or humble.

Comment by Scriptoresque Mon, 11th September

Is the tittle on i and j too low?

Comment by Umbreon126 Fri, 13th October

I love it!  I am polishing up a Unifont font myself--may I ask how you got the combining characters to work?

Comment by Greenstar967 Fri, 10th November

Concerning the tittles: no, because they balance with the diaeresis. @ Greenstar967: with monospace it is easy. You simply have to negative set the diacritics, keeping the left character line at 0, by this I mean, say, if your width is set at 10 pixels and you have a diaersis set at eight, then you set it in the same position as it is above the letter, but negatively-spaced. Does that help?

Comment by TCWhite Fri, 10th November

@TCWhite Well, I waaay overthought this.  Thanks for the tips; it works perfectly now! :)

Comment by Greenstar967 Sat, 11th November

@TCWhite, but maybe the diaresis is too low too...?

Comment by Umbreon126 Sat, 11th November

True enough. However, since your diaeresis is the same heighth as your tilde, I think it works.

Comment by TCWhite Sat, 11th November

You could move them up another brick, but I'm uncertain if that would look imbalanced? They would still harmonize with the other diacritics, though.
