36 downloads36%20downloads3635 comments35%20comments3536 glyphs36%20glyphs36A favorite of 10 usersA%20favorite%20of%2010%20users10Part of my "Found Type" project at UWE where we had to design a font for a theme that we chose.

I chose Saintly.

Throughout my research, I looked at the architecture of churches, the similarities in there designs and how certain shapes could easily be recognised as being linked to that type of architecture.

I then started looking at Dante Alghieri's Divine Comedy and the illustrations by John Flaxman and Gustav Doré.

At first it became difficult trying to figure out how to implement this into a font, but then I took on a challenge,

Would it be possible to get Doré's engravings into the font.

Then another thought crossed my mind, how do images look when compressed to low pixel quality sizes and how they are still recognisable.

So I did that, I bought a book of Doré's illustrations for the divine comedy, and they started to build into the letters.

Each letter also has this Art Deco like area to it which went well for the Stain Glass Window approach I also wanted in the design.

It took a lot of practice to get this right, and there was a fair amount of copy and pasting here and there but overall I'm quite happy with the turn out.

I hope you all enjoy!Part%20of%20my%20%22Found%20Type%22%20project%20at%20UWE%20where%20we%20had%20to%20design%20a%20font%20for%20a%20theme%20that%20we%20chose.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20chose%20Saintly.%0D%0A%0D%0AThroughout%20my%20research%2C%20I%20looked%20at%20the%20architecture%20of%20churches%2C%20the%20similarities%20in%20there%20designs%20and%20how%20certain%20shapes%20could%20easily%20be%20recognised%20as%20being%20linked%20to%20that%20type%20of%20architecture.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20then%20started%20looking%20at%20Dante%20Alghieri%27s%20Divine%20Comedy%20and%20the%20illustrations%20by%20John%20Flaxman%20and%20Gustav%20Dor%C3%A9.%0D%0A%0D%0AAt%20first%20it%20became%20difficult%20trying%20to%20figure%20out%20how%20to%20implement%20this%20into%20a%20font%2C%20but%20then%20I%20took%20on%20a%20challenge%2C%0D%0A%0D%0AWould%20it%20be%20possible%20to%20get%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20engravings%20into%20the%20font.%0D%0A%0D%0AThen%20another%20thought%20crossed%20my%20mind%2C%20how%20do%20images%20look%20when%20compressed%20to%20low%20pixel%20quality%20sizes%20and%20how%20they%20are%20still%20recognisable.%0D%0A%0D%0ASo%20I%20did%20that%2C%20I%20bought%20a%20book%20of%20Dor%C3%A9%27s%20illustrations%20for%20the%20divine%20comedy%2C%20and%20they%20started%20to%20build%20into%20the%20letters.%0D%0A%0D%0AEach%20letter%20also%20has%20this%20Art%20Deco%20like%20area%20to%20it%20which%20went%20well%20for%20the%20Stain%20Glass%20Window%20approach%20I%20also%20wanted%20in%20the%20design.%0D%0A%0D%0AIt%20took%20a%20lot%20of%20practice%20to%20get%20this%20right%2C%20and%20there%20was%20a%20fair%20amount%20of%20copy%20and%20pasting%20here%20and%20there%20but%20overall%20I%27m%20quite%20happy%20with%20the%20turn%20out.%0D%0A%0D%0AI%20hope%20you%20all%20enjoy%21

I'm sorry this isn't very complete and far from being perfectly well done, but it somewhat started to make me feel dizzy...;) And even though I'm not very convinced by this, I don't think I'd come up with a way better execution soon.I hope for Mr Escher that there are better tribute fonts for him out there! He'd definitely deserve it...It was by the way funk_king's Impossible Alphabet that reminded me of this unfinished thing laying around in my messy unpublished fontstructions box, and made me take it out and finish it. (If you can call 42 characters "finished".)
Also check out Frodo7's Hommage à Escher, geneus1's IsoMatrix 3D, and funk_king's Soma for some other great Escher-esque fontcrafting!I%20intended%20to%20make%20some%20sort%20of%20an%20M.C.Escher%20tribute%20here.%20I%27m%20sorry%20this%20isn%27t%20very%20complete%20and%20far%20from%20being%20perfectly%20well%20done%2C%20but%20it%20somewhat%20started%20to%20make%20me%20feel%20dizzy...%3B%29%20And%20even%20though%20I%27m%20not%20very%20convinced%20by%20this%2C%20I%20don%27t%20think%20I%27d%20come%20up%20with%20a%20way%20better%20execution%20soon.%3Cbr%3E%3Cbr%3EI%20hope%20for%20Mr%20Escher%20that%20there%20are%20better%20tribute%20fonts%20for%20him%20out%20there%21%20He%27d%20definitely%20deserve%20it...%3Cbr%3E%3Cbr%3EIt%20was%20by%20the%20way%20funk_king%27s%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2Fimpossible_alphabet%22%3EImpossible%20Alphabet%3C%2Fa%3E%20that%20reminded%20me%20of%20this%20unfinished%20thing%20laying%20around%20in%20my%20messy%20unpublished%20fontstructions%20box%2C%20and%20made%20me%20take%20it%20out%20and%20finish%20it.%20%28If%20you%20can%20call%2042%20characters%20%22finished%22.%29%3Cbr%3E%3Cbr%3E%0D%0AAlso%20check%20out%20Frodo7%27s%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F210288%22%3EHommage%20%C3%A0%20Escher%3C%2Fa%3E%2C%20geneus1%27s%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F45476%22%3EIsoMatrix%203D%3C%2Fa%3E%2C%20and%20funk_king%27s%20%3Ca%20href%3D%22http%3A%2F%2Ffontstruct.fontshop.com%2Ffontstructions%2Fshow%2F210428%22%3ESoma%3C%2Fa%3E%20for%20some%20other%20great%20Escher-esque%20fontcrafting%21

This is very accurate as it is based off of the official game guide and my observations from the game itself. There are a new extra characters that don't translate directly to English (Character - represented letters):

A - aa
I - ii
U - uu
O - oo
E - ei
H - ah
Y - ey
R - ir
G - ur

(The "G" may be weird for "ur", but I ran out of associated letters, so...)

All other letters are just their normal lower case letters. The Dovah language has no "C", so replace with "K" or some other letter.

If this is somehow copyright infringement, just let me know and I'll take it down. But just to be sure: the game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" and all associated characters and other stuff (like the Dovah language) belong to Bethesda and Prima Games and are copyrighted or something. But it belongs to them, I do not in any way claim that I invented or own this.

So, that aside, have fun with this font.
