A 12x12 pixel font designed for use alongside microfonts, especially the "Derpberd" family it's modeled after. These large letters help decorate the start of a new chapter in a manner similar to the art fonts of illuminated manuscripts. I think this makes a decent "high-tech" or "board game" font, too! :D

Alternate style on lowercase (alternate ,.!? are on <>/~). The symbols and numerals have a slightly altered frame to help differentiate them and add some flavor.


Showing use as a stand-alone font + the design use as an imitation of illuminated manuscripts (the small font is "Derpberd").

Great sample and font. I see you have issues with letters such as M and W on the 12x12 matrix. Would an 11x11 or 13x13 also work?

Thank you!
I may well try resizing them all to an odd-number matrix - or do it in a cloned version, as this one closely resembles the fonts it's made to accompany.
Here are three alternative letterforms I considered for M and W. I'm partial to the middle set, seems more consistent with existing N, V, etc. than the current letters... Thoughts? :)
