ASL is not a written language, but this font should, hopefully, assist anyone wishing to learn ASL.
The following is a quote from Wikipedia:
"American Sign Language (or ASL, Ameslan) is the dominant sign language of the Deaf community in the United States, in the
English-speaking parts of Canada, and in some regions of Mexico. Although the United Kingdom and the United States share English as a
spoken and written language, British Sign Language (BSL) is quite different from ASL, and the two sign languages are not mutually
ASL is often written with English words in all capital letters, which is known as glossing. This is, however, a method used simply to teach
the structure of the language. ASL is a visual language, not a written language. There is no one-to-one correspondence between words in
ASL and English, and much of the inflectional modulation of ASL signs is lost.
There are two true writing systems in use for ASL: a phonemic Stokoe notation, which has a separate symbol or diacritic mark for every
phonemic hand shape, motion, and position (though it leaves something to be desired in the representation of facial expression), and a more
popular iconic system called SignWriting, which represents each sign with a rather abstract illustration of its salient features. SignWriting is
commonly used for student newsletters and similar purposes."

I started this Fontstruction with a blank canvas and blank mind, and decided to draw my phone (guess which one that is!) to just warm up. Before I knew it, the idea for the whole design was staring me right in the face. Hopping around the internet, looking for images and information on which phones to draw was great fun. Who knew that the first ‘personal communicator’ was the IBM South Bell Simon, which combined the features of a mobile phone, a pager, a PDA, and a fax machine. Yes, you read that right! The Simon was also nine inches tall.

They're looming over your town. Use them as is or mix and match bodies and arms (numerals = body, uppercase = left arm, lowercase = right arm)
