A sort of blackletter with no historical references.
0 is meant for layering of the drop-caps.
It needs extended latin characters and diacritics, but you can typeset Latin with it! :-)This is a clone

This Fonstruction was created in my first year studying graphic design at UWE. The design brief was to create a typeface using the key word; 'ornate'. I have taken heavy influence from gothic fonts and architecture, looking in particular at religion and religious texts. For more information please visit my website at http://wasteofpaper.co.uk/wordpress
I welcome all comments and constructive criticism, thank you :)This is a clone

This is an old font of mine. Wow, it's more than a year old. Yeah I thought I'd share it with you. I'll make some extended latin and such now.

This was modelled after the type of an old German typewriter, with some liberties taken to provide for modern programming languages.
12-point size is pixel resolution (the only one this font is designed for). Also works well anti-aliased at 9-points.

I am a first year student at the University of the West of England. Our first project this year was to design a typeface based around a word of our choosing. I opted for ‘Pompous’, as it stood out to me from the list. During the project I visited Bristol Cathedral several times, and spent time in and around Bridgwater, looking at anything that I found to be pompous, such as cast-iron work and Baroque architecture. My final design is influenced by Gothic typefaces and raised lead tombstones/plaques. The name ‘Delectatio Morosa’ is Latin for peevish delight, which I discovered whilst looking at different Latin phrases.

Hi all, I'm back from my FontStruct hiatus, and I found a couple of fonts I never got around to publishing. I hope you like them!

|||||Português|||||Tipografia que simula escrita gótica, com uma caneta de corte largo. A altura das letras maiúsculas é sete vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A altura das minúsculas é 5 vezes a largura da ponta da caneta. A inclinação da caneta é de 45 graus em todas as formas, à excepção das linhas verticais com fim ornamental, que têm a espessura da caneta. Esta é uma fonte para grande quantidade de texto, com alguma preocupação pela legibilidade e leiturabilidade, mesmo para quem não está familiarizado com letra gótica. Não é adequada a nomes ou títulos, completamente escritos em caixa alta.
|||||English|||||Script typeface wich simulates gothic script with a fountain pen. The Upper case letters are seven times high the pen nib. The Lower case letters are five times high the pen nib. The tilt of the pen is 45 degrees in all forms, except for vertical lines with decorative porpose, which have the thickness of the pen. This is a typeface for great quantity of text, with some concern for the legibility and readability, even for those unfamiliar with Gothic script. It should not work well with upper case names or titles.

This is a work in progress, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Inspired by Fakir and Blaktur, from Underware and House Industries, respectively. Then it went off the rails a little bit and went more traditional. Also a bit of practice for something I've been cooking for ages.

Inspired by the pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and the flying buttresses found in Gothic architecture and the calligraphic Gothic Hand, a young and undaunted designer set forth to minimize counter space and emphasize vertical height with only a few bricks. The result was a modular blackletter font with crossbars, serifs and finials embodying a sense of sideways movement. May the design gods have mercy on her soul.This is a clone

A new attempt to develop a clear & simple gothic font. I'm still not happy with some characters (T and Z...aghh)but i'm sure I'll figure out something to get this right. Any help is appreciated!!
