This thorny, spikey thing; this sharp and brutal collection of shards: it just about belongs to a large family of designs known as Blackletter. One wonders what people might do with these letters, maybe Norwegian Beard Metal or strong Czech beer will have need of their communicative skills. Fetish wear is another possibility. I wanted to have an O with serifs and I am delighted with the result. It has a second set of capitals, still sharp but less ornate and altogether more Roman (these are not yet available, but anyone purchasing the current font will receive them as a free upgrade).
