A sequel to my own Herakles font, with multiple faces, and more to come, so the name is named after his second labor, namely, the Hydra. The straight lines and sharp angles make it suitable for evoking the feel of many ancient civilizations where writing was cut into stone. Whether your heroic deeds include slaying mythical monsters, or making the best spanakopita in the city, this font is for you.
Hydra small caps, and lower case.
Here’s the deal: I would love to Make all these cool alphabets available for you to download, but my day job takes up a lot of time. If enough of you make donations, I can spend less time working at that, and more time working at this.
This is not begging, this is crowdsource funding. The Church has been doing it for 2000 years.
You can make a donation through paypal at either of the links below.
I want to spend my time making fonts. If you want that too, here’s a way to make it happen.
If I can get $20,000 in donations by a year from now, I can free up a lot of time for font making.
A lot of other people could do my day job, but only I can make PR Fonts.
I have been working at a few projects: Making a new, reworked and fully professional version of my first font, PR Uncial, first released in 1997.
Here is the ampersand:
Medieval looking ampersand for the new PR Uncial.
My Viking font got a lot of good attention, including one client who wanted a smooth version. When I smoothed it out, it started to look kind of like Trajan, or like what you would get if the Vikings captured a Roman stonecutter, and made him carve Runes for the Cheiftain’s hall, and then make a translation so the Romans could read it too.

I thought of making a bold, and wide version based on the same skeleton alphabet. I will call it Dwarfish.
Dwarfish A- Chipped
My old Viking font, with a bit of a pun.
A friend of mine needed a card for his book-finding service, and I was working on a book icon for an upcoming font, so I brought the two together.

Educated in music and visual art, I am creating original display fonts: not the rice and pasta of Times Roman and Arial but more the green onions and cumin of your typographic diet.
