(no subject)

Against my better judgement, and also, since I happened to be chatting with him about it, tom's better judgment, which is usually even better than my better judgment, I jumped in the deep end of trying to actually do a "serious" font, i.e. really get all perfectionistic about consistency in stem widths, ornaments, the way things flow around the em square, general thematic themeyness, etc. This being because I absolutely adore the old traditional german-style calligraphic letterforms.

I only got eight letters done tonight, whereas I usually would have gotten like a whole 26 if I had just been blasting through them. I'm pretty happy with the results, though.
