Inspired by a font I saw in a children's book. The artist had drawn a map of the world on canvas and used a tiny serif font to label important points on the map. The letters had such a cute hand-made feel to them that I just had to recreate it in FS.

Uppercase letters are 6 grid squares (3 bricks) tall; lowercase are 4.5 (2.25 bricks). IIRC nudging had recently been introduced; this definitely would have been impossible without it.


How is that possible? It looks so irregular I wouldn't believe it was made on Fontstruct :O Are you planning to add more chcaracters? Because this font is awesome. 10/10

Congratulations on the TP :) I love the hand-drawn look, it must have been quite a challenge to get such a natural irregularity into such a small grid. *Bravo* and 10/10

:-) Thanks, guys. I've made the font cloneable so you can explore the complexity on your own. Most letters are actually built from the same basic arrangements; only some (Q, S, a, g, 2, and diagonals) required special attention.

I just cloned it. I'm totally impressed by the patience you needed to  make way over 100 special bricks ....... I wonder when I will make fonts that complicated. I'd love to  give you another 10/10
