ABOUT







Lerfu [Mark E. Shoulson]

Lerfu is Mark E. Shoulson's foundry located in Highland Park, NJ. Creator of a variety of fonts:

  • The Visible Speech Fonts in metafont and truetype cover a phonetic alphabet invented by Alexander Melville Bell (his son was Alexander Graham Bell). Bell was a teacher of the deaf (as was the younger Bell), and this alphabet was intended as an aid to teaching the deaf how to pronounce words. An example is VS MetaPlain PUA.
  • Marin, MarinCaps, MarinCapsItalic, MarinItalic: four free extensive phonetic truetype fonts made in 2004. They also cover Cyrillic, Greek and Hebrew.
  • Okuda: A metafont for "Okuda" orthography of pIqaD (Klingon language). This font was later modified by Olaf Kummer.
  • Gill Hebrew (2004, based on Gill Sans) and Shen (2004), both sold via Shoulson's foundry at MyFonts, called Lerfu.
  • Itonai (2005), a Hebrew version of Times New Roman, also sold via Lerfu.
