A typeface inspired by arabic kashida, including latin and cyrillic character set. Glyphs are designed for fluent connection in text strings.
"·" (middle dot)- you may use it for filling spaces between glyphs;
"_" (low line) - ending with a small space;
"|" (bar) - initial triangle, improves appearance at the beginning of lines;

A simple conscript (constructed script / writing system / alphabet) inspired by conlangs (constructed languages) and yet undeciphered ancient and modern writings.
Currently, this conscript is just a basic substitution set and can be used as an alternative writing system for the Basic Latin set (the new glyphs correspond to the Latin alphabet), i.e. for writing English, but the glyphs for Cyrillic are still unfinished.
The capital letters (uppercase letter glyphs) are identical to their lowercase equivalents, but are written inside a square to distinguish them from the lowercases.
The font has some problems with punctuation kerning, but these are because of the need for the capital letters to be aligned to the lowercases. Standard symbols such as numbers and punctuation are identical to their Latin originals.
The final goal is to write my own conlang, which will utilize a future version of this script.
The script is also intended as a substitution alphabet for writing Latin, Cyrillic and other languages (using a yet undeveloped specific interlingua convention).
For a quick reference chart on how to read the letter-to-letter correspondence, see http://sahwar.deviantart.com/art/Sahwarian-writing-systems-1-128986775.
As already stated, the SahWarian Alphabet Type1 is currently just an alternative alphabet for English invented by sahwar. It is intended to be used as a code for writing diaries, journals, artcode or hidden messages.
Type of writing system: alphabet
Direction of writing: left to write in horizontal lines
Used to write: only English / Basic Latin (for now).

This is a font I made up that I typically write in on a daily basis. I used to use it as a language, but that quickly fell apart and is now just a nifty font! It's very rough, and also my first attempt using the fontstruct. Enjoy! ;)

Latin alphabet for partially sighted people after William Moon (1818–1894).
Edgy square design.
N and Z are ugly.

An embossed script for the partially sighted, developed by Moon in the middle of the 19th century. Black or Extra Bold style in a 4x4 square. This of course wouldn’t be usable for the blind.
H isn’t perfect, but needs to be distinguishable from O. R and S are the same as in Moon Bold.This is a clone of Moon 4x4 Bold
