Jings!! You have been busy. What an amazing collection and such an inventive use of FS. Really well done GM :) at least 10/10

Many thanks as always, p2pnut.

Yes, this project took about 6 months of off-and-on work to complete all six fonts in the series.

Whew! I think I'm ready to go back to letters and numbers for a little while now...
