What is the Strange Alphabets™ font?
Strange Alphabets is a narrow Arts & Crafts display font inspired by late 1800’s book covers and an early 1980’s variation of the Siouxsie & the Banshees band logo. Strange Alphabets includes copious punctuation and symbols. It’s loaded with fractions, numeric ordinals and operators because everyone needs mathematics; including goths. In OpenType savvy applications, the first and last letter of a word will receive a small diamond ornament. If a word starts with M, the single diamond splits into three. Words starting with O will automatically use a tall O. If you’d like to force a tall O in the middle of the word, use a zero. Words that start with a double O such as Oolong, will receive a pair of tall O’s. A pair of O’s in the middle or at the end of a word will be replaced by a linked ring ligature. If your application allows you to access OpenType stylistic alternates, you can change the A and H cross-bars into small rings and remove all the diamonds from the M. The hyphen, en dash and em dash are replaced with ring ornaments. A separate diamond ornament ◆ is included under Unicode 25C6. If you want to disable the automatic OpenType substitutions, turn off your application’s standard ligatures feature.
