This is a collection of letterforms chosen for their looks and not historical correctness, making a (hopefully) wonderful anachronism. I am still a bit undescided about some forms, such as the c and t (are they too plain?) and the x (is it too foreign?). Please pitch in with ideas.

The name "Eerie" I have chosen, because it is one of my favourite words of the English language. It consists of only common letters, but their combination is strange: So many vowels for one consonant, initial double e, final ie. A more "English" way to spell it would be "eary", but that, of course, would have another meaning. Even the sound of it is like a creaking door, making it very self descriptive.

This looks attractive already, it doesn't have to belong to a specific period. Yes I think the t could maybe curve and get more height (it gets lost between x-height letters). I find the a and g difficult to read in short words. If you allow, I'll clone and see what suggestions I can develop.

I have looked at the t and c, and have had some ideas. I have also looked at the shape of the a as I found it difficult to recognise in text; I have made some alternatives. The word "cat" shows the two alternative t and c, plus 2 different a.

... I tried to find ideas for the g and y ... not much success I'm afraid, they look rather 'modern' now :|
