Pixel demake of Basalt.
I'll add all the original glyphs eventually... this was just an experiment to see how a pixel version would turn out!
A font made in the proto-calligraphic style I invented and used when I was a teenager. I haven't owned a nibbed pen since those days, so this font is as far as the style was ever allowed to evolve. It's somewhat lacking the handwritten character my writing had, but this regularity is the result I was trying to achieve. I had no particular use in mind for the style other than titling documents. For that reason I consider this to be a Headliner.
"I" is kerned to itself so that it can be used to make nicer-looking Roman numerals.

An attempt at Fraktur in 5x5.
Since Roman numerals have no zero, I have put X on 0.
The lowercase is really rough... consequences of using 5x5...
I attempted a blackletter style without any knowledge or references. The result reminds me of a vampire's writing!
The name "Dethzmezenger / Death's Messenger" comes from one of many old joke bands which I created.
Original size: 17.25pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)
The ultra-low resolution of this grid may be difficult to grasp without cloning. Fontstruct’s logo has a nominal x-height of 3 bricks, by comparison.
The level of detail, control, and finesse possible in a given fonstruction depended mostly on resolution prior to the recent advent of stackable composites. Did you want it better? Make it bigger!
Brute force, now meet Elegance.
Instead of building individual glyphs hundreds of bricks tall, stackable composites allow us to design rich modular schemata hundreds of bricks deep. Using curved bricks at their largest scale, linear and curvilinear elements dynamically harmonize and oppose. As well, screen fonts can be effectively hinted (aside from notable lack of kerning controls) without sacrificing the integrity of joins and intersections. And the trapping possibilities, Oh the sweet sweet trapping possibilities...
