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.

The eighth letter (not pictured here) was an ell, which is just a subset of the b pretty much, so I didn't feel too much pressure to show it off. That second word there is "book", if you can believe it. The blackletter lowercase k really is like that! At least in a few fonts I found. So I thought I'd imitate the maximally fucked up one.
