FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

LUC DEVROYE


ABOUT







Frankenfont

This is an interesting book project by fathom Information Design: This project started because of a fascination with the way that PDF files contain incomplete versions of fonts. The shape data is high enough quality to reproduce the original document, however only the necessary characters are included in the PDF. This prevents others from extracting the fonts to be used for practical purposes, but creates an opportunity for a curious Victor Frankenstein who wants to use these incomplete pieces to create something entirely different. So the authors grabbed letters from tens of thousands PDF files and printed a book in them.
