Leg hair font

A lot of us are interested in fonts. A lot of us are interested in, or have, leg hair. And now, finally, there's a story for both those groups.

Someone will be along to tell you that this is not technically a font or whatever in a moment. However:

* That is quite an achievement

and...

* Ewww.

Great. This means that somewhere on my body is the complete works of William Shakespeare and Stephanie Meyer, among others.

Sorry I’m standing in the way of your minimalist Bauhaus-esque fascist snoozefest.

Those are two very different things. I have leg hair, but I definitely would not describe myself as interested in it.

Precisely, it's those who have no leg hair who are interested in. The clinical term is leg hair envy.

Might we way, the big bald spot in this font is the lack of a "sunlit" version where every hair is angel-bright and glowing. Then we would have split opinions on "ew."

Now let's see him do all the kanji.

Sure, but can he do bold?

Needs better kerning.

Those of us with generally fair European hair know that there is one place where the hair qualifies as bold, so, please, no, let's not do bold.

You guys laugh, but I have to keep a shirt on at all times because my stomach hair grows in a pattern of words that call up that which can't be put down.

Another hair font

Sorry about the inconsistent photo quality, the images were accumulated over many years.

Then we could dismiss the whole argument as hair-splitting.

Isn't that what mascara is for?

Sure, he's using it hair. But what else can you use it fur? Someone needs to pelt this guy.

I'm a font geek, and even I think this is too much.

My teachers always told me someday I'd write the Great American Novel. None of them ever told me someday I would BE the Great American Novel.

This is not nearly as much fun as the Body Hair brush in Maya Paint.

Without the Internet, I would never have known about this. I live in the future! I am suddenly ambivalent about that.

Hm. This is one of those things where the sum is far, far less than the parts, isn't it?

Every single one of us have leg hair, but many of us are in denial.
I'm talking to YOU, you shavers, waxers, depilatorers.

The mane thing is that this is a shock to all decent people and only promoted by fringe groups. We should pelt them with gobs of shave cream. Call the fuzz, and wool make sure the font is put away with no keys for the locks.

Too much? Probably.

You can do Shakespeare? I naturally have barely enough to send a tweet.
