vernacular

Dear all,

this is my first attempt at type creation as an amateur type designer.
I would love to hear from you,

Do not hesitate to criticise!

When I studied in the art school in Latvia my lettering teacher who happened to be in love with historic manuscripts and old books taught us NEVER EVER to use blackletter in all capitals. He should have known better.

I would appreciate general feedback on this image database I've been working on, and I would also like fellow Typophiles to get involved and contribute on any level. Cheers, RD

Hi everybody,
I'm a student of master in graphic design and I'm building a new typeface. It's a remake of a hand lettering. The original draw was made by a Oporto's seller.

Here is http://typophile.com/files/hamburg.jpg

I'm showing here for ask your contribution and opinion. I have many doubts about how I can adapt the original design for new caracters. Can anyone help me?
Please, say what do you think about. Sugestions and critics are welcome.
Thanks.
