The lower case glyphs of XiBeronne are plain Black Letter. They were inspired by a celebrated French manuscript written at the beginning of the 15th century, containing Gaston Phoebus' Book of the Hunt. The upper case characters are chiefly of my own invention, shaped to match a genuine A from another source.
As usual, you'll find a long s on the number sign.
-- There is an ending f on the left bracket...
-- ...and an ending t on the right bracket.
-- The left curly bracket contains a double l
-- On the right curly bracket you'll find a little swash to be employed before the first letter of words beginning with i, j, m, n, p, r, u, v, w, and z.
-- The bar sign contains an alternate r.
-- Finally, on the ASCII tilde you'll find a contemporary abbreviaton sign of indefinite meaning, to be employed as a decoration wherever you see fit to place one. It's to be handled like an accent (the char won't move when you type it).
