Not feeling well at all today, so rather pleased with being able to knock out this curlicued 'N'. The root of the tendrilled character began life as Nobel (by Tobias Frere-Jones) but rapidly grew out from there.
If you'd like the editable eps and use the character for your project, or smash it up and send me a copy back, mail me. It's rather chunky file-size to host. The edit's I'll feature here as a changelog to track its development.
