CELESTIAL ALPHABET was inspired by ancient writings which saw Hebrew letters in the stars. This is related to the Kabbalah and other mystical texts which sought to find structure and meaning in the alphabet and place its origin in heaven itself.
An interesting source is An Alphabetic Labyrinth: The Letters in History and Imagination by Johanna Drucker. In there you’ll find everything you ever wanted to know about the history of writing, including its meaning and purposes.
I have used the ancient style to create this Roman alphabet with many alternate characters, numbers, punctuation, and international characters. The graphic above shows the variety of cool mystical symbols also included and the characters they replace.
CELESTIAL ALPHABET is available for $5. Download the demo which contains just A-Z; if you like it, send me $5 and I’ll email you the complete font in your choice of TrueType or Type 1 for Mac or for Windows.
