This is my first pixel preference font. It is based on popular forms of title and display writing and engraving in 16th and 17th centuries. It is named after famous printmaker and painter Albrecht Durer, although his writing was only one reference out of a few for this font, and you may notice that other than the A, there are not many similarities with Durer's style. The upper case is purposely deteriorated alla Caslon Antique, and is wider spaced than the lower case. Gamma and Delta in Greek and Coptic are alternate G and D. Other ligatures and alternates are in Alphabetic Presentation Forms in Unicode.

A fine design, with many strengths.

Cool font with nice ligatures! Only one thing: "Latin letter OI" is not actually an oi-ligature. It is a letter (a sort of q or g) formerly used in some turkic alphabets. It has been misnamed (very confusingly), and of course it doesn't mean you can't use it as an oi-ligature, but the more you know. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C6%A2

Thanks! Yes, that is quite confusing.
