I agree with thalamic, this is a beautiful flowing design and very original. It shows a lot of creativity, thought and aesthetic feeling.

Good combinations of bricks give a fun font. You made this mix of styles,widths and heights work well; I do like a,B,H,i,N,R,S,{}. Will you do the diacritics on 'More Latin' ? Is this for a project?

Nice one, I hadn't seen this before. It looks like a Wild West design but seems to have a touch of Art Nouveau in it, too, as it looks more organic than the usual architecturally constructed Western fonts.

That's one good method to get 'micro' characters, for sure! (The complementary one being obviously the -vertical- flattening.) I mean by 'good': with consistent references (before dealing with the duplicates, if the dot matrix were smaller). Cool work (with

"5Mikropix" got many more glyphs (4949 vs 1699, i.e. about three times the count), after cloning one of its old versions… So I stick with the original font. (Where squares are are more legible than dots at this almost 'micro' scale, b.t.w.)

Overlooked (or new?):

{Tip of the day: the 'micro' glyphs can be 'kemed' -moved closer- with 3 levels of resulting ambiguity in the pair: level 1 = blank

PS. Nope, winty5, the 'limits of minimalism' would arise from a 1x1 matrix (plainly "░" OR "█" -cf. above- to depict each glyph 'completely'). If

I still cannot see the logics of your shrinkage (that is, the way you degraded a virtual font, and which larger one). Your technique or tricks look all more or less subjective, not based e.g. on solarized ratio-free downsamples…

@FontBlast: since you left-align all your 1-dot wide glyphs, why not "." itself? (many flaws as fixed width, I have to insist - and there would be even more duplicates as variable width.)

Besides:

Hi!

My only comment was on 2013-05-10.


• [3x3] "fs groszak's dreams" (v2013-05-29):
Still lacking a comment of mine. Ditto on [3x3] "3x3 is possible" (v2013-05-23) by Groszak, at first I'd wish.

My last comment is right now on 2017-04-24.


• [3x4] "fs Everyone sees the font" (v2014-02-11):
Still lacking a comment of mine. Beforehand, I have to check quickly whether the cloning only applied to the size of the dots.

Not quite an expected comment of mine (applicable prioritarily right above instead).

I think that almost all members came here because we wanted or needed a font... now that you're a member you can make fonts for other projects ;) or to give as presents to family and friends :)

More to be polite*, here is a quick review (thus not checked computationally, which is error-prone)…

• 6 duplicates: "E"="B", "l"="I", "p"="P", "c"="G", "x"="X", ","="i".

• I'll keep the glyphs that are quite ambiguous ("S"~"4", "y"~")",

As always I'm amazed that you find these old fonts and recreate them perfectly. I never thought that wthere was such a variety in pixel fonts.
