Not so long ago I made a thread asking to identify something like [[http://cl.ly/MHfV|this]]. But it was just me looking for analogues early in the work progress. Although recently I've found very similar [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/moretype/rehn/|one]], but it was already too late to quit.

I intended this for a paragraph-length copy. Quotes, openings etc. Originally it was an upright italic, but everything changed except /e slanted crossbar. 2 Masters, (prob.) 5 weights, Multilatin, Expanded Cyrillic. My first font being made with Glyphs. It's awesome. Won't be going back to FontLab.

Neris is a name of a river that goes through my city.

It's strange how you cannot edit OP anymore.

Anyway, this still needs a lot of polishing. Right now I'm kerning the Cyrillic. Then will be working on italics.

Just noticed nasty bug with /g, gonna fix it

I like this more than I thought I would. :-)

BTW if you never make an Italic for it, don't feel bad, since Italics are over-rated, especially in a typeface with finely gradated weights. Related: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/stone/silica/

Have you made a job from posting in Typophile yet? :)

What about Rehn link - different enough? And does any quirk catches the eye here? Except for /e-cy, it's middle bar was already lightened.

Well, I do get some -modest- commissions thanks to Typophile, but mostly it's about self-education... Actually no, these days it feels like the Alamo. :-/

I don't think Rehn is close enough. But considering this genre has become pretty crowded their might in fact be something even closer out there! :-/ But as long as it's not intentional don't get paranoid about it.
