What if GS Unicode wasn't just made of pixels? What if it had a better, more appealing width/height ratio? What if it utilized the new FS inventory? And what if I wasn't way too ambitious/crazy in making this? No idea, but I'm eager to find out!
This is the sequel to "Petermax's 3x5 and 4x6," with almost twice the number of characters. Many small changes have been made, especially improving the readability of the Vietnamese vowel characters. Various writing systems have been added: Tifinagh, Coptic, Ol Chiki, Runes, and Ogham. I also gave connected scripts a try: N'Ko, Mongolian, and Mandaic. Obviously these are not perfect, but I see them as a major improvement to the first. In this version, I was also able to add some extra Latin phonetics as well as some few Cyrillic diacritics. Some things are definitely out of control, as this program isn't completely compatable with right-left alphabets, such as Arabic, Mandaic, and N'Ko. If anything sticks out that should be improved, please let me know. Thank you, and please enjoy! :)
"Petermax's 3x5 and 4x6" is my first attempt at an extended set of characters. Though it is quite obviously imperfect, I'm quite impressed with how many I was able to finish. I tried to make each distinct and readable (all upercase), while still mostly maintaining the 3x5 pixels for lowercase and 4x6 for uppercase, thus the name. Please leave a comment if you have any concerns, thank you!

1226 characters for your displesure, it has georgian armenian cyrilic greek coptic and more latin then you will ever need
"Sederhana" is an Indonesian word, meaning "simple"
with its simple style, funny looking "V", lack of diagonal lines, and its easy to read!
this font is CAPITAL ONLY!
note for Arab users:
بطريقة ما لا يعمل الجزء العربي من الخط ، لذلك يجب عليك استخدام الأحرف الأساسية النهائية والمتوسطة والأولية للكتابة بدلاً من ذلك
اسف على ذلك :/
somehow the Arabic part of the font doesn't work, so you must use the final, middle, and initial base characters to type instead
sorry for that :/
(نعم أنا أستخدم مترجم جوجل فأنا لست عربي, yes i use google translate, I'm not an Arab)
- Basic Latin
- More Latin
- Extended Latin A and B
Intended Language Support
Here is an extended version of my Atemayar Rigid Script. This script has taken me years to get to the point where it is. It is incomplete however I figured I would release it with the current list of characters that I have created. While I plan to complete it, it will be some time before this is achieved so please bear with me as life tends to get in the way sometimes.
I began this font August 31, 2017, and I'm releasing it 30 days short of its 2 year anniversary.
Based off the original alphabet of Atemayar Qelisayér featured on Omniglot created by Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen. Credit for all the original characters of this alphabet goes to him, as well as credit for inspiration. Some characters in this alphabet are wholly original to this font (most are not however), these are inspired wholly by the original Atemayar alphabet in one way or another.
I truly and sincerely hope you enjoy, this font is made for all to enjoy and to spread such a beautiful alphabet to be used for all languages and all writing systems. I love Atemayar more than any existing writing system, I take all my notes in it, and I wish that Simon Halfdan Hvilshøj Andersen's alphabet will be spread around the world and used by many.
The alphabets can be categorized into groups based on the following criteria:
- Pseudo-Atemayar: shares no letters with Atemayar, but appears similar
- Semi-Pseudo-Atemayar: shares a few characters with Atemayar, but overall still looks like its base alphabet and can't be read by Atemayar users
- Modified Atemayar: Follows all/most of the same letters as Atemayar, however has added or modified letters as well
- Classic Atemayar: Original Atemayar alphabet without change
The alphabets' classifications are as follows:
Basic Latin: Classic (except X, which is a ligature of K and S)
Punctuation (all except . , : ; ? ! ... " '): Modified
More Latin: Modified
Extended Latin B: Modified
Extended Latin A: Modified
Greek & Coptic: Modified
Arabic: Modified (reversed letters)
Devanagari: Modified (line above letters)
Hebrew: Modified (reversed letters) ***Incomplete***
Hangul: Pseudo ***Incomplete***
Bopomofo: Modified (dots above letters, ligatures)
Thai: Pseudo ***Incomplete***
Just a typeface I work on from time to time. Progress is somewhat slow but irregular.
Currently more than 2900 characters.
Comments are appreciated.

GS Unicode is a project I'm working on so (almost) all languages get support! With 14,564 non-spacing characters, this font is finished (as of Unicode 13.0, and as of FS's pre-July 2021 glyph inventory). Please tell me if some of the characters aren't working. I'll try to fix them as best as I can! ...And now, with a new glyph inventory comes a new age....Stay tuned for more updates.

anything goes in this book-style pixel font. it is for secret project.
maximum of 11 pixels tall (plus 3 px descender below)
[1.7d] Still working on CJK and Hangul. Still not even halfway there!!!
[beta 1.7c] More CJK, Aboriginal Canadian Syllabics, Bengali
[beta 1.7b] More CJK but still not nearly enough
[beta 1.7a] I found a stray pixel which stretched the font two pixels too high. It's gone now.
[beta 1.7] ??? stuff? korean jamo, like 0.3% more of the CJK, Greek Extended, and one of the East Asian scripts (the name I forgot :<)
[beta 1.6d] assorted CJK and symbols
[beta 1.6c] devanagari (hindi script), thai
[beta 1.6b] thai and other junks. some characters improved
A neat language of combining letters to create even more unique characters. Based on some languages like Armenian. Work in progress.

Carthage Sans LKE is an expanded version of my Carthage Sans font, which in itself is a reimagining of Apple's Espy Sans 12 bitmap font. It aims to cover as much as possible of the Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek blocks of the Unicode standard (thus the initials -- "Latina, Kirilitsa, Elleniki"). I'm open to expanding it to any of the other scripts Unicode covers, but I have little to no personal experience with most other alphabets; if you'd like to contribute, I'd particularly be interested in Arabic, Devanagari, Katakana, Hiragana, Armenian, and Hangul. (I would like to add Hebrew as well, but it's hard to get the diacritics right in what's essentially a pixel font. We'll see.) The current status as of 10/28/2015 (the date of initial publication):
-Latin: all of Latin-1, Latin Extended-A, and "Even More Latin"; Latin Extended-B is missing some characters that seem to be mostly either phonetic notation or obsolete.
-Greek: All Greek characters supported by FontStruct. If you need some of the ancient dialect characters like Pamphylian digamma, they're now in the GitHub version; polytonic will appear there as well, if anyone asks for it. Basic Coptic support is there, although I tried to fit it into the Espy Sans aesthetic rather than trying to duplicate the Byzantine-Egyptian traditional style.
-Cyrillic: Still a work in progress, but all Slavic languages using Cyrillic characters should be covered. The main holdup is Abkhazian, which is spoken by just over 110,000 people in the world and also has one of the longest alphabets in the world; I have no idea how many of them would be interested in this, so it hasn't been a huge priority. (Besides, the PT family from Russia's Paratype is excellent and far better than I could do with most Cyrillized languages.) I've emphasized support for several languages, the most important being Vietnamese (75 million speakers deserve some support no matter how tedious it is to do so).
I've also added characters for Old Irish, Old Church Slavonic, and Icelandic. There's a number of characters used in pan-African linguistics I am not sure if I need or not; they'll get filled in eventually alongside the Cyrillic, but how fast I have no idea.

I am deeply indebted to Keith Martin (@thatkeith on Twitter), formerly of the UK MacUser magazine, and his Espy Sans Revived project for a reference for the original letter bitmaps; Carthage is entirely my work but it's hard to find Espy Sans specimens in the wild, and his work is probably the best.This is a clone of Carthage Sans
