"A cell is merely 7 feet long and barely 5 feet wide." A poor translation of the famous lines of the Dutch poet Jan Campert. The same measurements hold for glyphs in Metafontstruct. Metafontstruct is not really a font, it is a concept. It is a fontstruct within fontstruct, one could say; or it is a new fontstruct, with even more constraints than the one we're all so font of. You can use it in your word processor to create the glyph you like on the spot. When you're finished you press the spacebar to create the next glyph. The keys QWER ASD ZXCV contain possibilities for the left side of the glyph, TYUIOP GHJKL BNM for the right side, and F;',./ for the middle. The capitals and numerals are just some examples of glyphs you can create. There's freedom within these boundaries, as we're all experiencing in these covidiotic times. If I may give another poor translation of a Dutch poem, by Jules Deelder, a famous poet from my home town who died last year: "Within the bounds the possibilities are just as unbounded as beyond." Not enough freedom for you, looking for another brick? Feel free to clone!

Thanks, all of you.

@elmoyenique: I was inspired by your nice puppets!

Bravo! It's like the 2nd dream level of Inception. I was wondering if Elmoyenique's zpells were an inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

I attempted to create Russian letters. The letter Ё turned out completely disastrous, and some of the letters are hard to interpret, but overall, it seems to do decently.

Great concept!
