Typeface Design: Hoax

This typeface is constructed using triangular wedges. Even though it was originally intended as a display face, when viewing it at text size, it surprisingly has the similar rhythm and texture of textura blackletter.

I’m currently redrawing a text version of the typeface with a taller x-height (and consequently shorter ascenders) and with a more consistent width for the capitals letters.
