» Description Adapted from the embroidered lettering on the famous Bayeux Tapestry. The Tapestry was made c.1073-83 and records King Harold's adventures and loss at the Battle of Hastings to William the Conqueror, with a special appearance by Halley's Comet. Although armed with photographs, including some very good closeups, I still wanted more detail to get the right feel. So I embroidered all the letters and numbers I needed, in imitation of the style of the original, and made the font from scans of my embroidery. I've included all the characters that appear on the Tapestry, plus those needed to fill out a modern font. (J, K, U,and Z do not appear in the original.) The font includes at least two versions of each letter, numbers, punctuation, international characters, and a couple ligatures.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
