Currently the following sets of non-alphabets are available for free download:

Crochet Type No. 2
Star Letter Combination
The Illimitable Border

Digital typefaces with their strict linear arrangement proofed to be impractical in emulating the properties of analogue typesetting. Instead of font software, the vector elements are provided as Symbols in Adobe Illustrator, making the Symbol palette a typecase-like container to be picked from.

The grid alignment of the elements in combination with the fundamental transformation of 90 or 180 degree rotation makes for a rather satisfying sensation close to the gestural simplicity of handsetting type.

We hope these non-alphabets are to your delight and would be pleased to receive in-use samples at
