Over the past decade, we have designed five typefaces based on mathematical
theorems and open problems, specifically computational geometry. These
typefaces expose the general public in a unique way to intriguing results and
hard problems in hinged dissections, geometric tours, origami design, physical
simulation, and protein folding. In particular, most of these typefaces
include puzzle fonts, where reading the intended message requires solving a
series of puzzles which illustrate the challenge of the underlying algorithmic
