Little Lord Font Leroy

Lilly with the letter LFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

I think the Letter Buildings font fascinates me more than any of the other fonts I’ve featured so far. When I first looked at it, I couldn’t figure out what it was – it just looked like a jumble of 3D shapes to me. Then my eyes did that little pop of adjustment and I could see the letters. It’s like those optical illusions of two faces or a vase and old lady or young woman, where you kind of have to flip a switch to see it one way or the other. Even now, knowing what I’m looking for, it still sometimes looks like random shapes when I look at it, and I have to rein in my eyes to see the letters. I think it's easier to 'see' the letters when it's smaller, so click here for the larger version to get a better feel of the illusion. I can’t imagine using it for anything, but it certainly is a neat and impressive design.

Letter Buildings

While I’ve featured other fonts shaped out of animals (like bunnies and cats), those looked very cartoony, whereas Letters Animales looks much more realistic. Well, as real as animals twisted into letters can look.

Even though the Lynx font has the spelling of the large, fuzzy feline or the text web browser, I still really like the look of the circle links forming letters.

And I thought Leather was creative since the letters look like they were cut from a leather jacket.

I’m a sucker for a good pun, so Little Lord Font Leroy made me giggle. The design of the font is nice, but this pick was all about the clever name. I haven’t actually read Little Lord Fauntleroy, so my tweet tale is inspired by the Wikipedia plot summary.

Inspired by his grandson’s innocent belief in him, the embarrassed Earl charitably employs downtrodden fonts like Comic Sans and Papyrus.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Lovely is Lily with her letter L?
