This is a bitmap font and text engine called FONTSELF conceived and designed by graphic designers, Franz Hoffman and Pierre Terrier from studio koilinen in Lausanne, Switzerland, and software developer, Marc Escher. "FONTSELF is a type project about handwriting and drawn writing. It provides the ability to create fonts that preserve the gestures of a given handwriting and the original look of the drawing appliance (ball-point pen, pencil, ink, paper, etc.). FONTSELF proposes intuitive tools to create and edit bitmap font (scanned letters) as well as solutions to use them and exchange them."
