I just felt like making this font, so I did. I have no particular use for it. I guess making the hieroglyphs activated the font part of my brain, or something. It’s not a real font (I no longer have Fontographer software), just letter designs. If anyone wants to make a real, functional font out of this, lemme know and I’ll send you .ai or .eps files.

  1. I know there are at least one or two FOSS fontography programs out there. There is FontForge, which works, even if the UI is a bit archaic. I’ve also heard that Inkscape (which uses .svg) has some font-making features, which can generate fonts when used with a converter of some kind.

  2. Oh David beat me to commenting by a few minutes. I was very slow to refresh the page.

    Inkscape is excellent but I’m not aware of easy font-export capacity, although seems reasonable in principle.

  3. =v= I used to make fonts when I was a kid, using charred sticks of wood and the backs of menus. Maybe my Mom has them stored around here somewhere …
