Width & Vertical Width VF

  • かなABC漢字

A special-purpose font that demonstrates the relationships between variable “width” axes for use with different writing directions. For example, horizontal layout is typical with Western characters (represented as hollow rectangles in this font), but vertical layout is often used with some Asian characters (represented as solid rectangles), and it’s possible to combine aspects of both in different ways. This can make the relationship between different glyphs’ width, height, and rotation complicated. Ken Lunde explains more in the article introducing the font.

White On Black VF

  • White On Black VF
  • Black On White VF
1 1000

White On Black VF is a special-purpose variable font with just one glyph (㊎) demonstrating an issue related to the non-zero winding rule used for rendering fonts. The issue is especially problematic when negative glyphs are reversed out of a positive background shape. The weight axis also shows how the technique for avoiding the problem with static fonts – removing overlaps – isn’t a viable solution for variable fonts because the topology of overlapping shapes may change across variations. The counterpart font, Black On White VF, is made with the same shapes but with an additional circular path, showing how the issue is not present with more typical positive-on-negative glyphs. The fonts were produced by Ken Lunde using a glyph designed by Ryoko Nishizuka.

A set of special-purpose variable fonts based on Adobe Blank and Adobe Blank 2, intended to render all Unicode characters / code points using variable glyphs. Adobe Blank VF renders all code points with empty space, and Adobe Black VF renders them with a variable rectangle.

In those cases, the plain Adobe Blank VF and Adobe Black VF fonts can be used. Ken Lunde explains more in the article about the fonts.
