First results from the stamps, dated 1934

It took some time to develop a complete (sort of) font from just 4 different letters on an old stamp. De D, E, I and N were the basis of my creative work. Was it easy? No, not quite, but with a little help from my friends the characters slowly took form.
I'm not there yet, but the intermediate result looks very promising. As always, you be the judge!


Three different pangrams (sentences with all characters in a specific language) were used. At the top the old faithful brown fox, then a line of Danish text and at the bottom a sentence in ├Źslensk, the language spoken on Iceland.
