This is one of my first fonts. Based on the infamous "2 Line English Egyptian."
I thought rather than trying to create lowercase letters, badly, that I would simply go the Small Caps route. The Small Caps have been shrunk and the weight was added to to get a more similar bar-width? to the uppercase. There have also been a number of slight modifications. The O's were slightly enlarged to help offset the optical illusion that occurs with all O's I find, that it simply doesn't look as big as it actually is, and makes the x height look inconsistent. I also chopped of a good bit of the cross bar of the T's, and widened up the J, which looked extremely clumsy and almost pathetic IMO.

All Criticism appreciated.

I would also like to know if anyone has any opinions on creating numbers for this font. Should it even be attempted? Is it sacrilegious, lol? And what is the first sans-serif typeface with numbers known?
