This week's font is my first time revisiting blackletter since slavkäppen. I really like how the g, y, v, w turned out. Here is the reference I used.

I think your f s and k should look more alike and more like l. And then the font shouldn't render right unless the font size is below 12 or 9.

Agreed. jcreed is not putting his all into making it totally unreadable.

Is authentic german text really so much to ask for. I am really happy when there are two different esses and an esset and each letter is difficult to discern until the whole mord if read.

Oh! I like blackletter fonts and I really like yours, esp that you weren't afraid to curl that y and g.
