    @Nav – These two Wikipedia articles provide a great overview of different Runic alphabets. ^_^ Some of the names for them are totally awesome sounding. ^_^

    Dear Asian Angel
    Many of your photos and also especially these fonts and glyphs are overwhelming attractive, but do you systematically check for anything lethal in them, or do we just try them out and watch to see whether our machines start acting funny or failing?

  5. Asian Angel

    @ewilson – I run each zip file that these fonts come in through VirusTotal before I even open them. ^_^ Once they clear VirusTotal I open them up, create the pics, and post them for everyone’s enjoyment. ^_^

    I also put the icon pack files through the same process before I will feature them here. ^_^

    P.S. Thanks for the compliment on the images! ^_^

    Isn’t this a map from Uncharted 2?

  7. Asian Angel

    @Julius – I believe that it is from Tomb Raider: Underworld. ^_^

    i think the egyptian “fonts” (actually it’s called pictograph, no?) are far more complicated than the pictured above. have you ever read carl sagan’s cosmos? well, in it you’d find the real pictograph example. apart from the fact, these fonts are fabulous, and the author is cute — looking like japanese adult vid idol :) thanks.

    The Africain typeface crashes crappy (read: Intel’s) onboard VGAs that render 2D graphics by software. wonder if the author tested it before made it public. Failing to address this layer of consumership means letting down 60% of the population. I’m believing that ewilson above suffered from this, his/her Windows might’ve been crashed to BSoD saying igfx32.dll caused the uninconvenience..
