Based on French Bastarda writing and some -- freely handled -- Rotunda capitals, this font has no match in historic documents. It's a first try to combine imitation and imagination.
There is no number sign in this font. In its place, you'll find a long s. Equally, you'll find alternatives in other places:
- another C instead of the left curly bracket
- another E instead of the bar sign
- another G instead of the right curly bracket
- as well as st and et joined by means of a flourish on the fi and fl keys.
This font contains some attempts at kerning, especially the pp.
