100 Benedictus

These Gothic letters are titled Benedictus.  They're grouped to highlight the 8 letters that have descenders or ascenders, which can be ornamented with extra strokes.  You will have to leave a lot of space between your lines of lettering to accommodate this alphabet, but it's worth it. 
I wasn't quite sure how to treat f so I made it a little shorter than the other ascenders.  And I thought that y, g, and j looked clearer with short descenders, especially g.  You might like to extend them further, however.
