does anybody have the Symbolus II font?
« on: September 05, 2018, 03:47:06 pm »
Hi all,

I'm trying to find the Symbolus II font and can't find it? Does anyone have it and is willing to share?
Cheers,
Claudius

I got it from its developer, never mind.

If Ras is reading this thread, then I would like to alert to the fact that
the two font links (Symbolus II & Aethelred) on his DOC site are broken.

Yet it's much more than a strange script. It became a trend – so it persists. By the early 1990s, fonts could break through to the market one of the first times they were made. Charles Bigelow, one of the designers of Wingdings, of the iconic architecture firm Bigelow & Holmes, told me Wingdings that a font became part of mainstream culture for the first time.

I am curious as to the value of that font.  Is it for numismatic symbols not available elsewhere?  I've spent countless hours looking for symbols that grace ancient and medieval coins.  You can never have enough! 

Can you share a picture of some of the font symbols, and perhaps the contact, if your readers would also like to gain access.

Cheers~

I use this font, but it only works on my own Windows PC,
of course, it doesn't return the correct characters on internet networks,
not even on  " This Forum".

That is the real limitation on fonts for anything online (and even with sharing documents at times unless fonts are embedded). Not all are supported by browsers, software online, etc. Very few actually are.
