Alber (First Draft)

This is the first draft of a new font I'm working on,
(working name Alber)
Some characters are missing and the spacing/kerning isn't completed as yet.
Any comments would be much appreciated.

Very nice. The cap R looks a bit narrow, tho as I can't find one in your text setting, it may look fine in text.

Very very neath work, I agree on the "R" and also find the "K" a bit ackward. I like the font and would like to see heavier weights someday.

Very nice work, I can't imagine this is your first as the quality, consistency and concept is top notch.
Critique? B, P, R are a hair small in context. also, how about an open numeral 4.

Proper work. Additionally to the previous critiques i have my doubts about the lc 'g'. It is alien in this alphabet - look at your textsetting. The same applies to the 'sz' which in fact is a greek 'beta' .

Great work! I like the quirky lc 'g' and the lc 'a' is nice too with its small bowl. Keep up to good work!
