What is the Haylurker font?
Haylurker combines blackletter elements at the bottom of the characters with a unique serif forming a solid line at the x-height.
Haylurker was originally designed, as Shark, for the masthead of The Fish Rap Live!, the alternative student newspaper at the University of California at Santa Cruz.
The K and Cyrillic Ж are reminiscent of the legs of a cricket or grasshopper; Blackletter is historically German. Therefore, the name is the direct translation of the German word for grass-hopper, Heuschrecke. More…
It includes the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets, small capitals, and a full set of accented characters.
NOTE: You do not need to install HaylurkerSmallCaps OTF unless you are working with a legacy application that does not support OpenType small caps features (smcp and c2sc tables). The HaylurkerRegular OTF contains all the small-caps variants in an OpenType table.
