Karuso. As in Robinson Caruso. Because it should be shipwrecked on a deserted island. That's where I planned to leave it in private (and you're probably thinking that's where I should have left it). Check the creation date - it's been stranded for a while. This is the first in a set of text face experiments, and it reveals the beginnings of an evolution of high contrast fontstructing over a minimized grid space. Not all glyphs are how I wanted them to be. Some may be hideous. The spacing is terrible. But as a fontstruction, this one really got me to push the bricks to develop some resemblance of a Times Romanesque sharp serif typeface. Many, many tricks had to come in to play to make this happen at its current state. Overlapping bricks, brick stacking, overlapping brick stacking. It's all in there. I learned a lot from this insane attempt just from the lowercase letter forms alone. I mean, just look at that g! Try it at your own risk. 6x8 grid space, Double XY. But don't worry, this is as bad as it gets. It does get better from here, but only a little bit, so don't get your hopes up. Stay tuned.

Not even going to make a sample for this. Consider it for learning purposes only. =)

A brave attempt in such a tight turning circle. I thought I was the biggest masochist here.
