THANKS TO THE HELPFUL FONTSTRUCT STAFF RESTORED BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL INTACT CONDITION!!
Blackletter attempt I'm working on at the moment.
(Only upper case fully completed so far (incl. excessive kerning).
Numerical and punctualtions only partially done. Neither have I done any lower case yet. But this hopefully is comming soon)
I have little to no knowledge about this type of lettering other than knowing it usually has heavy kerning and its appearance strongly depends on the orientation of the nib.
So I can use all the tips and expertise any of you guys here might have and wanna share with me!This is a clone
Cute little animation for this font:

The ultra-low resolution of this grid may be difficult to grasp without cloning. Fontstruct’s logo has a nominal x-height of 3 bricks, by comparison.
The level of detail, control, and finesse possible in a given fonstruction depended mostly on resolution prior to the recent advent of stackable composites. Did you want it better? Make it bigger!
Brute force, now meet Elegance.
Instead of building individual glyphs hundreds of bricks tall, stackable composites allow us to design rich modular schemata hundreds of bricks deep. Using curved bricks at their largest scale, linear and curvilinear elements dynamically harmonize and oppose. As well, screen fonts can be effectively hinted (aside from notable lack of kerning controls) without sacrificing the integrity of joins and intersections. And the trapping possibilities, Oh the sweet sweet trapping possibilities...
Please, vote kindly and stay tuned for more :)This is a clone
