Font representing the Genji-mon (so called because they were used to mark each chapter of the world’s first novel, the Genji monogatari), a system of symbols which indicate all the possible groupings and subgroupings of five elements. They were used in kumikō, a japanese ceremony/game about guessing different types of incense by smell. The number of all combinations of five elements is 52, but I reproduced the 54 symbols used to mark the Genji monogatari chapters, which contain the same symbol in two variations and a made-up one as well. I did the font because I think it was perfect for Fontstruct. But if you need something more polished, and in four different styles, there is it.
