A bold, over the top caps font with ornaments. Spacing is fine in the truetype!

Thanks williaum. Came across your stacking technique by cross reference yesterday. Amazing! I bow my crown ; )

I'm jealous. I love fonts that shouldn't work but do

Thank you Intaglio. You do a fine structing job too, and these may not be your finest, but my favourites are Slantfest, FlawaPawa and Too Much Cafeine. These bricks need some attitude to loose their rigidness.
Is that Mingus on your avatar?
Comment by typerider 5th August 2008
Close but no cigar. Though I love Mingus too.

Ok, missed the cigar; For one cigarette, handrolled, my best bet: Monk. (hadn't seen a pic of him with that long a beard before…) Good taste you have. Lacy?

Alas! My Tyrone Struction had a flaw that seemed solved, but now strikes back.
In the review window of the FontStruction application, letterspacing looks odd. Rob Meek pointed out this was probably due to the fact that I started some characters with a ‘half block’.
Much to my joy, when using the TrueType download in Indesign, the problem was gone. At least on screen it was. When printing it to a postscript printer, the troubles rose again… Ofcourse, lots of this anoyment comes out of the fact that I use very little grids. Spacing etc… is in relation to the blocksize. To be continued…
I illustrated the problem on: http://typerider.wordpress.com/

Glad to inform that Rob downloaded and printed Tyrone from Indesign. And had no spacing troubles.
Happy me… Thanks Rob!

Very nice and detailed letterforms at such a small grid size.

For me a Top Pick!

And I invite visitors to check your interesting blog...
