Rlyeh Runes Version 1

I've finished up the first draft of the Rlyeh Runes font.  It's very basic at this point.  The font only includes capital letters, uses mirroring to fill out the letters set, and the layout is raw.  That said, it's handy for when you need a glyph for padding out a scroll or illustration.  Here's a "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" sampler.

You can download the TTF font from Google Docs.  If you have any issues, just drop me a line.

Very nice!

So, you made this font from scratch... What software are you using? How easy was it to do?

@ Phil

Thank you for the kind words.

@ gndn

I've been sketching out the rough glyphs and then scanning them into Illustrator. For this version I used to convert the glyphs into a usable font.

that came out quite nice. :) kudos!

for future projects, fontforge might be worth a look – especially because there is what appears to be a quite comprehensive free book for it:

I was going thru some old stuff I've "stolen" from you and realized that this font is missing the letter s. If you change jumped to jumps, the sentence has every letter of our alphabet.
