Nice!
I like the way you have expanded the family styles, but in a single weight and scaling.
The charming letter proportions strike a nice balance between slick contemporary type (e.g. tail on l) and slightly vernacular retro lettering.

The ogonek should probably be connected, and definitely to the right stroke of the "a", not centred. And the slash on l-slash angled.

Nick Shinn,

Thank you for your reply, you are right, the ogonek should probably be connected, also Dcaron is not typical or traditional in "Public Gothic Little". But, There are so many suggestion about scedilla in my country and many of them are better than traditional variations. i mean, my Dcaron or Aogonek much better than typical variation and i think it is useful. Of course final word of this issue should come from the Central european Designers.

...my Dcaron or Aogonek much better than typical variation and i think it is useful.

They are incorrect.

The comparison with scedilla is not valid.

It might be possible to compare the dcaron to the scedilla situation, but only with regards to a choice between the "apostrophe" form of the accent and the "acute" form. Using the v-shaped caron centred above the letter is not an option.

you may right, i will ask to CE designers, and if they say same thing, i may update it.

There are some interesting "non-standard" accents designed by Preissig and Menhart.
