Somehow, although he is the smallest office boy around the place, none of the other lads pick on him. Scuffling and fighting almost has ceased since Kerensky came to work. That's only one of the nicknames of Leo Kobreen, and was assigned to him because of a considerable facial resemblance to the perpetually fleeing Russian statesman, and, too, because both wore quite formal standing collars.

Description
All right! New font. I actually wanted to do something different at first (a true font, you know, one that's usable, with real letters), but that will have to wait because it takes soooooo much time! This font was made as part of a project with Lese- und Schreibwerkstatt Nalbach. In the last few weeks, we have been covering all kinds of topics related to dragons! In one of those weeks, we made some cryptographic alphabets. Alphabets like dragons would use them. So we thought it would be nice to provide anyone who is interested with a font. Hence the name: Drachenklaue, "dragon's claw" or dragon's writing". So, here's the concept: Dragons would resort to a natural advantage when it comes to writing, their claws. That means that their alphabet consists of mostly simple lines. Due to their global presence in mythology, their writing system would be inspired by existing ones. I thought, I'd try to implement a few aspects from other writing systems. The design of the glyphs might remind you of traditional Asian inking, the horizontal lines in the capital letters were an attempt at creating a ligature, like in Arabian, but I used three lines, which makes it look a bit like a musical staff. At the same time, the horizontal lines were also a nice way for me to make sure I had a baseline of some sorts. I used a few ideas of another, more complex, fantasy alphabet that I've created a few years ago. I might make it a font some day as well. Unfortunately, the spacing won't make it such a good design as this one. I realise that, while the design might be interesting, the font is actually not all that legible. Even if I had done some kerning. Oh well... This is probably the final version of the font. For me, it's purely for entertainment purposes and it looks OK right now.
