Here’s a new free font for you to install: Marain Script. It’s my first one! I’ll be using it in Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple.
I used a web service called Fontifier, so the quality works best at small sizes. At large sizes, you see the slight pixelated corners the web service creates. At small sizes, those pixelated corners just look like a grainy texture that fits an alphabet written by a brush. Hey, happy accidents!
The letterforms are based on the Marain alphabet, from Iain M. Banks’ “Culture” novels. In those novels, the spacefaring Culture use the Marain alphabet because each character is unique and can be read in any rotation. That seemed to make sense for use in Do, since the monks and pilgrims are not bound by gravity either.
