First off, lemme start with a disclaimer. This font is not mine, I did not create it. Just so you know from the outset.
That said, I've been thinking I'd like to digitize this one or at least use it as basis for something else. The reason I wouldn't do a straightforward digitization is that this face seems a bit too quirky still, perhaps the original auther would have benefited from a critique board like this. (I think this is another of Hermann Ihlenburg's faces, I seem to have a thing for his work)
Anyhow the biggest problem, as i see it, and what bothers me most is that the capitals C, D, G, E, O, Q, and maybe even P don't really seem to fit (too round) and then the 8 gives me troubles too (too square). I mean maybe Hermann was trying to mix blackletter with the modern style, but i don't think they meshed too well in this example.
So i guess my basic question is, if you could change anything about the following face, what would it be and why?
