    Slowly expanding the set of characters. Now with 'N', 'G', 'C', 'L', 'A', 'D', 'U', 'F', and 'K'. Not so sure about the 'K' though. Thoughts?

    I don't mind the K at all.

    Not sure if the shot is playing tricks on me but the G seems heavier than the rest.

    @The Prince Ink Co. You're probably right. I didn't know if it was me staring at the damn thing too long or what. But, I think it is a bit heavy. Maybe all the verticals on the rounds have too much weight altogether. I'll adjust that 'G' by the next go round for sure.

    I like it so far!

    Question: are my eyes deceiving me, or are the weights different from line to line? Or is it just the way the JPG is displaying?

    I don't mind the K overall. Maybe if the leg was closer to the leg of the R, it would be a bit smoother. But all the letters seem to belong together nicely!

    Is this going to be UC and lc?

    @Nikita Prokhorov I believe the technology is deceiving you. This was photographed, then uploaded. So any distortion is just via the medium.

    I'm still wrangling that 'K'. But I think you're right. If it were closer to the construction of the 'R'. As far as UC/lc…right now it's going to be two sets of caps with small caps. The second set consisting of alternates. But a lower case isn't out of the question if I'm feeling froggy.

    The K has much character...looks like it's tiptoeing along. Kind of a cab calloway dance move! The E too. I love this typeface. So much movement.

    Thanks, @Camille McMorrow. I love the 'R' and 'K' for that reason. You think the 'P' is a bit too much? I'm on the fence about it. Maybe a set of alternates will solve (and create) all my problems.

    I love it, but alternates could be a great way to keep it flexible for people. What's it named after...a street?

    @Camille McMorrow It is a street! My favorite coffee should is located along it, and out the front window across the street has this great façade with name across the top of the entrance.

    I like the 'P' too. But if I can get enough alternates that are worth it, then I'll do another set.
