Letters within letters! Type an uppercase letter followed by a lowercase letter to nest them. Type a period for an inner square, and > for an outer square.

This was an experiment from several years ago that I found half-finished while looking for potential CounterComp entries. I added missing letters and quite dramatically improved the existing ones. It's not perfect, and some combinations don't work so well (I'm particularly unhappy with capital I), but I think it turned out pretty well nonetheless.

Beware: for some reason, the downloaded font is huge-about 6 times the height of most other fonts-which makes it look horrible in e.g. MS Word, due to the pixel optimization at "small" sizes. I'm not sure what causes this, and consequentially, I don't know how to fix it.

Wow! Great concept! How did you do it?

Thanks, ThinkLogically :-) The uppercase is generally each made of 4 bricks, while most of the lowercase are single composite bricks. You can clone and take a look if you'd like!
