Width & Vertical Width VF

  • かなABC漢字
    あAB漢字12
1 1000
1 1000

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.

A typeface designed “for typesetting at miniature type sizes”. Its underlying structure is based on a course pixel grid, and the variable ink trap notches can be used to counteract the effects of printing or rendering at small sizes, or for stylistic effects at larger sizes.

0 1000

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. The “2” versions of the fonts are produced in a way that is more data-efficient, but may not be supported in all environments. 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.
