Details

Description:
This is a Fontstruct adaptation of an earlier work. The main point was to construct a font using exclusively one shape: the triangle. It was like creating a pixel font for a screen with triangular pixels. Of course, the original has equilateral triangles, and looks slightly different. It is also in the same vein as Legolas Codex.

Interesting experiment.

I think increasing the space between the letters will help to make it more readable.

@gferreira: It's done. Looks better, indeed.

The underlying grid reminds me a bit of Frank Blokland's letter model (also here).

Can you make a solid version of it?

I really like this sort of modular construction! And I like the earlier Legolas Stencil, as well. Have you thought of expanding that one? (Fun fact: I first heard the name "Nimrodel" in a song by Camel... only later, when I'd read the LotR books, did I realize what the song was about.)
