This font was created after a particularly uplifting note from a fontophile.

Created out of need. For a 40s-style event, I wanted blocky lettering with the square "S" I had remembered. Not being able to locate anything like it, I created this and gave it an appropriately "square" name. I finished up the font and forgot about it. Then I discovered "Futura Display" in a book; THAT was the one I'd remembered and wanted. (There are also versions called "Function Display" and "Gumshoe.") Mine was created independently of those, but it is related.

This one was adapted from an older, stencil-printed Ouija® board. The printing was fairly crude, so I kept the texture. What really appealed to me is how similar the stencil gaps and the spaces between the letters were, the letters seem to break into pieces. Font includes only the characters that appeared on the original board.
Made from scans of rubber stamps I carved a long, long time ago. They were based on Helvetica and once included caps and everything. But they've disappeared and all I'm left with is the lowercase and in a degraded state. Each letter is more clearly stamped at its right side. At the lowercase positions there is an alternate stamping, more erratically placed. There's also an outline version with the letters more clearly delineated.
My digital interpretation of SOLEMNIS, an analog font by Günter Gerhard Lange, 1952. I was unable to find a digital version of this distinctive font, and was eager to work with it. So I drew this one afresh. The name is intended to suggest the original without infringing on any trademarks. This is an uncial (single case) font in which the letterforms favor the capital versions (except d, h, i, k, p, q, y). It has a calligraphic feel, vaguely Hebrew in the squareness of the forms and the weight of the horizontal strokes. Font includes letters & numbers as shown.
The man sat quietly in the corner, all around him people believed him to be slightly lacking in the intellectual department. But unbeknownest to them, it was all just part of his devilishly clever plan to take over the world. He believed this element of surprise would be his greatest asset.

Alone they sat on the most beautiful desert island they had ever seen. Although this would have been the most idealic honeymoon spot for the couple, it lacked one thing. Food. So after days of starving they had decided to choose who would eat who to survive by a game of rocks, scissors, paper. Unfornately Alfred picked wrongly and his rock was beaten by Agnes' paper. Leaving Alfred stuck between a rock and a hard place.

There's nothing quite as funny as seeing a guy get hit in the love spuds with a piece of two by four.
He slipped the car through the gears and proceeded to accelerate out of the corner. He could see the line up ahead, his pit crew had told him he was miles in front, it was time for some show boating. As he neared the line he slammed on the hand break to try and attempt a perfect hand-break stop just over the line. Unfortunately as he slammed on the breaks he skidded on a patch of oil and slammed into the wall just before the line.
He couldn't help it if he had a square head. Yet it didn't stop people from pointing at him and laughing at his misfortune. But then again it did come in hand for balancing a six pack on his head, which was a great party trick of his and impressed the chicks no end.
