Mike Hebrew v3.3 Released

Post by Mike Thompson » Wed Feb 24, 2010 8:46 pm

For a new release of my free Hebrew font, see
http://cunliffethompson.com/font.

The main change is that the Latin characters have been modified to make them more harmonious
with the Hebrew. This isn't easy at all since Hebrew and Latin are quite incompatible in appearance.
The Romans of course were conquerors of the 'known' world and the ABC is quite imperial.
The Hebrews on the other hand worried about altogether different things...
So I softened the Latin by tilting some of those strong verticals and horizontals.

On the web site there are plenty of examples and links to PDF files containing both
Latin and Hebrew. You can zoom in to the text and see these changes.
