A bit of artistic flying ;) This design would have benefitted from the original 8x8 composite possibility but 5x5 or 4x6 would have worked, too. Done as far as I need it for normal communication in modern English.

Added that 'handful of missing glyphs' for my grandson :) 4x5 for every glyph would have been easier to design. The new connecting bricks allowed a small size.Version for French and German will follow.

Love it, Jutta

Nice! B.t.w., I'd like to see the related typographic ligatures… :-)

Comment by dpla 8th October 2017

dpla: so would I ;) Seriously, I hadn't  thought of it though I agree they would give most interesting visuals. When I have nothing pressé to do  I'll work on some ligatures. Which  Unicode set(s) would  be for them?

Comment by Aeolien 9th October 2017

I made a new $, the old one is still there for comparison, next to the new. Do you think I should keep the old or use the new?

Comment by Aeolien 9th October 2017

which is the new $

Comment by anonymous-1466233 9th October 2017

Have you tried a solid version?

Comment by anonymous-1466233 9th October 2017

The new $ is the simple one. A solid version, no, I wanted to use those lovely finer line bricks. Using core bricks to get twin and triple lines would have changed the dimensions I require. Maybe next year. 

Comment by Aeolien 9th October 2017

I like the the newone...

OK, and never mind, in a vector editor, it might be (more) feasible to build upon your letters, for even more intricated glyphs when necessary. (Let's talk spaghetti now! carbonara? parmiggiano?)

Comment by dpla 16th October 2017

Héhé, you forgot the Chianti, dpla ;) I don't have a vector editor nor a vector design program to see what could be done with this:/ I dream I had a font design program to tidy my designs. I'll go prepare a Chianti allongé ;)

Comment by Aeolien 16th October 2017

Inkscape would do the job (vectorization of large screenshots, that is, without much touch up, beside the great deal of effects that match your expectancies). In general, I recommend this -almost complete- freeware (it's still a tad unripe, thus a little awkward to me), for its native support of the SVG format, which is free (and shareable without asking people to pay for e.g. Xara, and of course Adobe's more professional, sorry, fermented solutions).

(I'm not surprised you did not order the Lambrusco ;-))

How did you do R?

Comment by anonymous-1466233 28th October 2017

It would be fun to have all the lower case letters look like a pile of linguini on a plate, sort of like the upper case letters melted down.

@ xBox: quarter circles, horizontal&vertical lines, y-shape for 3-way join,  composite to  close open ends

@jonrgrover: if you want edible not legible I can cook that :D

Comment by Aeolien 31st October 2017

How did you do the Y-shape 3-way brick?

Comment by anonymous-1466233 31st October 2017

@ xBox: I didn't, it's a ready to use brick

I dare you to make a sample out of spaghetti noodles at home...

Comment by anonymous-1466233 3rd November 2017

I do xBox, every time I cook pasta :D  So can you, just cook the longer varieties such as spagetti, linguine, bucatini, udon, capellini and check the pasta pan often to enjoy the progress of creating fabulous pasta glyphs ;)

Comment by Aeolien 3rd November 2017

The ligatures in our/my Latin script… (Mainly: “Latin Extended-A/-B/-D”, and “C1 Controls & Latin-1 Supplement” + “Latin Extended Additional”… actually, all the derivations from “C0 Controls & Basic Latin”).
Though, I was more broadly thinking about the more fanciful ones (any repetition, for instance, would take advantage of this enrichment).
B.t.w. a sample would be funny with a close-up photo of a bowl (with actual pasta).

All theses suggestionswhen you have finished your plate of linguines!


Good "linguine gratin" clone, but its lowercase looks a tad glitchy to me (too).
