Grist for the Mill

Everything is grist for the mill.

My wife and I went to Half-Price Books this weekend and I found several books on type and typography. One of them was a book of type samples. Then, we went to Texas Art Supply and I found even more books on type and samples of typography. One of them was a book of foreign type samples that included sanskrit, Japanese and arabic. So, it’s time to fire up the old font foundry and stamp out some fonts.
Sure, I’ll have to alter the scanned fonts some, but at least it’s a place to start. Especially with the foreign language fonts. And, of course, I’ll want to take my scans and alter them significantly enough to make “unreal” languages. I think that gamers and conworld builders and conlangers would love to have some original, but alien, fonts for their use. I know that I would like it. In fact, that was what started me on my quest to figure out how to create fonts in the first place.
So, soon, I hope, I’ll have some updates and some downloads.
