Though there are many thousands of digital typefaces available, none seem to be made exclusively of letters that tessellate, a complete tessellating alphabet. This void is now filled with not one typeface, but a group of typefaces, the Tescellations kinship group. Even though I am aware of only one use for this typeface--writing about tessellations--that does not mean there are not hundreds or perhaps thousands of other uses.
Framealot is a frame or border or page divider construction kit. By choosing and mixing various elements, a wide variety of different geometric borders or frames or dividers are possible.
If there is ever a need for a heptagonal fonts, that is, a font based on a seven-sided polygon, Heptagroan may fit the bill, unless the need is also for true lower-case letters. Heptagroan is caps only, though some of the caps on the lower-case keys differ from those on the upper-case keys. Heptagroan is monospaced and is available in two weights.
In the 19th century typefaces with star-like serifs developed from the medieval type styles. Asterx is in that tradition of star-footed typefaces, though it is not modeled on any particular one.
Years ago the company that developed Fontographer marketed a program called Font-o-Matic, a program that distorted fonts in various ways. 99% of what it produced was garbage, but every once in a while it would yield something interesting. Since I had designed a lot of typefaces by that time, I had lots of material to feed it and it was fun to see what it produced.
This family was not designed for any particular purpose. It began as a very condensed, sans serif face, and then I played with it to see what else it could become.
XPawnShop is a typographical chess font; the pieces are letters. The Pawn is an awkward letter P, the knight is a horse in the shape of an h, the bishop is a decorative letter B, the rook is an elephant with an R shape, the queen is a Q, and the king is an ornate K. Two other XPawnShop fonts are made of very simple pieces, but as a bonus, both have the set of dominoes from the unicode block 1F030 to 1F093.
There are three XKnightMares fonts. Each has rather formal chess fonts. The key layout is a bit complicated; see the key guide in the gallery for detailed information on how to position pieces correctly.
In addition to making chess boards, some of the pieces make interesting decorations.
I designed a Morse-Code font in the mid 1990s, but when I decided to update it, I found enough problems with it to completely redo it. I hope I got all the mistakes out. There are two fonts in the package. One of them shows the letter key with the Morse Code equivalent.
Onyon is a strange typeface with stems that thicken in the middle and narrow at the ends. It that will make your eyes water if you use it at small point sizes for text.
A warped version of the font Letunical, WarpLetunical has a Halloweenish feel to it.
A warped version of the font Anarckhie.
In late 1988 or early 1989 I noticed that the circular form of the sickle and the linear form of the hammer could be used to form all the letters of the alphabet. In an effort to sell other typefaces, I released the result as a promotional typeface, first in Type 3 format as Stalingrad, and later in Type 1 format as RedLetter. This version has been revised.
In NewLibrary the letters are on books, not in them. (The letters are from the typeface BeneScriptine).
NerdishHex is a hexagonal distortion of NewNerdish that I thought was rather interesting.
FourJuly contains three patriotic fonts that might be fun to use in July. They are also very hard to read, but perhaps not as hard as the somewhat similar letters in the fonts of FlagDay.
FourJuly A has square, blocky letters with star interiors.
FourJuly G and FourJuly H add diagonal stripes.
