Ugaritic 3.0.1 Sample Letters

I've completely redesigned all of the letters, and added alternate shapes for every character I could find. If you know of any other alternate forms, let me know and I will add them.

"Makes all the other Ugaritic fonts look like stylus scratchings on clay."

You get both the TrueType and PostScript versions of the font, identical across PC and Macintosh computer platforms.

  • How It's Done:
    These fonts are labors of love, as they each take about one-hundred hours each to make; at least that's when I stop counting. I've decided to focus upon creating primarily alphabets from the ancient Near East, out of personal interest in my ancestors culture. I strive for academic accuracy, studying as many scholarly sources as I can find for each text.
    Photographs or careful tracings of the individual letters are then scanned and outlined by Fontographer - a magnificent font creation program. Then comes many "happy" hours as I smooth the arkward lines of a handwritten text into an idealized version of each letter. This is done on a grid of one-thousand points by one-thousand points, and to one-thousandth of a point accuracy. This results in a font that is true to the proportions of the original alphabet and is highly readable, both on screen and in print.



Special Orders available: I can create a new fort to your specifications, or update an old one.


Coming eventually (Gods willing):

  • Mystic Font: a modern Roman alphabet inspired by medieval fantasy.
  • Phoenician Moabite 3.0: updated and corrected .
  • Unicode mapped version of Phoenician Moabite.
