Abstract:
We present five recent puzzle fonts — where reading glyphs in the font require solving a puzzle — that illustrate five different puzzles/puzzle games, each with a corresponding mathematical result. Each font is an open-source interactive web application that lets the user write messages in the font, and then solve the resulting puzzles (or send them to a friend to solve), revealing the message.
