Strange Alphabets is a narrow Arts & Crafts display typeface inspired by late nineteenth century book covers and an early 1980s 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 that sort of thing, especially 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 crossbars 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 that sounds too complicated, play with your application’s OpenType features, and see what happens. If you want to disable the automatic OpenType substitutions, turn off your application’s standard ligatures feature.
