A TrueType Font by S. John Ross
Cumberland Games & Diversions

Archipelago is a combination between a mapping font and an alphabet font, with 26 letters and 10 number characters made up of little drawings of islands. The leters can be layered on top of one another in a drawing program to create original coastlines with a hand-drawn look. Mostly it's a novelty item, but it may be of use to some folks who want an "analog" look to a fantasy map's lines but have no access to a scanner. Plus, it can be used as a kind of "inkblot" logo font!

Hitting the SHIFT key will produce hollow (outlined) characters.
