What kind of calligraphy is this? (NOT font ID)

The attached image is the work of designer David Rudnick, however I recently stumbled across a font in development on either this site or a different typography forum using this style as well, but I can't find it anywhere. If you know what I'm talking about a link would be cool, but since I have no other details, that's not the point of this post.

What style of lettering is this? The super-elongated, overly ornamented letterforms that intertwine with each other are so beautiful. I would love to learn more about it but have no information - anything would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tall sans-serif font with good digits

Introduction
At port tastings we always use placemats, to label glasses, and for the other paperwork that helps run a confusion-free tasting.

Behold the draft placemats for a tasting on 11th October. Observe the background digits, “66” on the second page, currently set in FusiThinNormal, and outlined by my PostScript code (with clipstroke).

Good features
• Tall, such that two adjacent digits have a bounding box in the ratio of A4 less 30pt margins.
• Sans-serif, so not fussy in this background role.
