Scribe

A scribe sits here carefully writing on the parchment before him.

I have to admit that the hardest fonts I’ve found to create are the ones that are the eldest. Full of flowing decorative flourishes and a distinctly human twist they’re hard to do justice in any format let alone 8x8 pixels. Uncial is my only published one to date and it’s not one of my favorites.

This font started in late 2019 as an attempt to take a break from a Black Letter font - one I’ve been working for way too long but will hopefully still one day get released. As this font is not bold it has quite a different feel from popular “old time” fonts such as the one made popular in many a Zenobi text adventure.

It works pretty well for large runs of text and is still quite readable for titles.
