Portculliard – Black Letter in Action

Greater Albion always releases a Black letter each year, hopefully well before the Christmas seas (which we seem to have managed this year – September). There is something about this year’s project which suggests a caste portcullis to us.  Why not visit ye olde world in your next designer project?

Black Letter Fantasy

Here’s the latest progress on Merrivaux.  We now have a full set o capital letterforms sketched out.  Merrivaux is not a revival of an historical blackletter, but a pure work of our own imagining.  There is also a deliberate family relationship to one of our earlier designs, the Roman display family Merrivale. We will report more progress in the near future…
