133 Heavier Land

This alphabet, Heavier Land, fattens up basic Neuland, first seen as Heavy Land [February 23]. The letters here are about 2 pen widths tall, about as heavy as letters can get.  
You'll need to hold the pen at a flat 0° or turn it to a vertical 90°.  To see how the strokes overlap, check out Dryland, [January 26]; to see the strokes separated, see Disjoined [April 30].  
There are virtually no interior spaces -- even the tiny white dots inside O and Q are not really essential to identifying the letter.  You could consider closing up some of the white notches.  Trimming an alphabet down to the bare essentials is a fascinating exercise.
