Rockets font

Rockets, a font by John Stracke, .

This is a font meant to evoke space travel. I started with a capital A based on the shape of a 1950s rocket, and went from there. The capital O is the Earth; the lowercase o is the Moon; the lowercase c is a crescent moon...and many other characters are based on those

The font has 757 characters (including some duplicates and some characters which are used only as accents for other characters): all of ASCII, Latin-1, Latin Extended A, about a third of Latin Extended B, Latin Extended Additional, plus a bunch of punctuation characters. If you find that some character from your language is not quite right, please be kind; the only languages I've known are Latin, English, Spanish, and German, which means that most of the letters outside ASCII are new to me. It has a Euro symbol.

It is released under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). You should have received a copy of the LGPL along with this program; it's in a file called COPYING.LIB. If not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA, or see .

Where the LGPL refers to "source code", I take that to refer to the file called Rockets.sfd, which is a file for editing with FontForge (see, an outline font editor program. FontForge is not GPLed, but its license does seem to count as free software (it's BSD-style, without the advertising clause). Thus, according to the LGPL, if you distribute this font, you must make Rockets.sfd available to the recipient(s) under the terms the LGPL specifies for source availability.

At the time of this writing, Rockets.sfd is available on my Website at .
