Hinged Dissection Font

Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine


Every letter and number in this font can be folded from one universal hinged chain of pieces, specifically 128 right isosceles triangles hinged at their sharp corners. In particular, every character has exactly the same area. In addition, the chain can fold into a square, represented by a period. See our paper “Hinged Dissection of the Alphabet”, Journal of Recreational Mathematics, 31(3):204–207, 2003.
