Turn your handwriting into a font!

Wed Mar 04, 2015 7:12 pm

I'm not sure if anyone has seen this before, but I found this article, and if you have a scanner and some free time, it's actually a pretty neat idea!

Why would I want an unreadable font?

I or my teachers can barely read my handwriting but it would be awesome for coded messages

Yeah. Like a translation font - hey, that's a great idea! English to Dwarfish runes from The Lord Of The Rings! Woo! I'll get onto it tomorrow. I made a PDF document that lets you translate English into LOTR runes, but I'm afraid it's too big for attaching. I'll turn it into a font (probably) tomorrow, though.
