Another textualis style calligraphic blackletter / gothic script typeface.
Besides the Basic Latin character set this has a lot of special use characters and alternatives too, such as:
Ligatures, Superscript, lining (default) & oldstyled numeral forms (located in halfwidth), traditional medieval punctuation marks (located in private use). And there is even a complete, but slightly modified & smaller version of the alphabet located in the Halfwidth unicode block as well.
I hope you like it! :)
This is a pixel font that I made inspired by the calligraphic hand Fraktur. I currently haven't added any punctuation marks, nor digits, but I might add them in the future.
I hope you all enjoy using this font, as I've really enjoyed creating it :)
Update: I've now added all of the punctuation marks, as well as numbers! - 11/02/19
Update: I've changed the curly brackets to heraldic lions :3 RAWR!!!
Pixel demake of Basalt.
I'll add all the original glyphs eventually... this was just an experiment to see how a pixel version would turn out!
A font made in the proto-calligraphic style I invented and used when I was a teenager. I haven't owned a nibbed pen since those days, so this font is as far as the style was ever allowed to evolve. It's somewhat lacking the handwritten character my writing had, but this regularity is the result I was trying to achieve. I had no particular use in mind for the style other than titling documents. For that reason I consider this to be a Headliner.
"I" is kerned to itself so that it can be used to make nicer-looking Roman numerals.

An attempt at Fraktur in 5x5.
Since Roman numerals have no zero, I have put X on 0.
The lowercase is really rough... consequences of using 5x5...
I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
Original size: 17.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
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...
