I don't get it. Rectangles?
Comment by thalamic 31st July 2008
This is mostly a novelty FontStruction, but I found it amusing. See definition two on this page.

I guess the redactions are the character weight which the Gubmint has deemed obscene.
Comment by intaglio 31st July 2008
The best i have seen in a long while at fontstruct.
Says everything.
10 points by me.
@ minimum - this is hard to minimalize, down, under below ...

Comment by prototype 12th June 2009
A hidden gem of early fontstructing. Minimalism taken to the extreme. It's not the most legible font, perhaps, but the spacing is perfect.

An old motto comes to my mind: You can not not communicate.

How are you supposed to read it?

Comment by Mairi 18th December 2012
I really like this, but I think the spaces and gaps should be black too, otherwise it's kinda revealing. This is pure brilliance though. The best part in my opinion is that this font still has real information stored as letters, meaning everything written with it can be decoded by simply changing the font. This is especially useful for when you want to write up a classified document digitally without having to swap out the information with meaningless boxes... Just change the font and boom!
Of course, you'll have to stop people from being able to copy-paste the text, but that's not too hard.

It's quite a beautiful font, a real statement on the apparent simplicity of life, with many complexities going on in the background. 10/10

Am I the only person who get's the joke? It's a reference to the ███ ██████████. Well played [DATA EXPUNGED].

You should replace a couple of the uncommon characters with actual words, so that you get a whole bunch of redaction and then a word now or then:

X: system, Z:location, Q: meeting. and leave all the other characters  ███ ██████████
