Illusion Letters & Symbols

A pair of slightly-serifed fonts based on the concept of impossible figures such as tri- and four-bars (see the page on Oscar Reutersvärd, Bruno Ernst, & Others for many examples of these objects), though there are a few figures that, because of their simplicity, don't form impossible junctions even with their lines extended. Note that these will only work correctly when the kerning option is selected in your Word processor / DTP program (In MS Word, this is via Format | Font | Character Spacing, and apply to 12pt and above), and not all character pairs are kerned so please read the descriptions.

Other Fonts

Tubells (v1.4 : 17 July 2010)

At one time or another I suppose everyone who designs (or in my case messes around with) fonts creates something like this, so this is my tuppence worth. Available in 1 (normal : AaBb), 2 (a sort of pcb-track : CcDd), Outline1 (fine edge : EeFf), & Outline2 (filled & edge : GgHh).

Tubells

Upper- & lower-case Roman alphabet with limited accents (acute, grave, circumflex, dieresis) on vowels only, n-tilde & c-cedilla; basic upper & lower-case Greek alphabet, with digits and all the usual punctuation symbols; all character pairs from 0021 (!) to 005E (^) kerned.

A .pdf file of the available characters for each can be viewed / downloaded: Tubells1.pdf, Tubells2.pdf, TubellsOutline1.pdf, TubellsOutline2.pdf.

Tubells2 was used as the main title for the PCB Shopper PCB Shopper site.


QuadCaps (v1.2 : 17 July 2010)

This started out as just a few letters to create a logo for a friend's site, but never wanting to leave things half-done I completed the alphabet.

QuadCaps

Upper case Roman alphabet with digits and minimal punctuation; no accents; no kerning required as it's virtually a mono-spaced font (all letters except the 'I' are the same width, and all the digits are the same though narrower).

Freeze (v1.4 : 17 July 2010)

Another one of those symbol fonts that you either love or hate. A freize made from alternating S / Z zig-zags, interlocking Ts, or left / right swastikas. Each set has a choice of corners and can be extended in both directions.
