Paper by Erik D. Demaine

Erik D. Demaine and Martin L. Demaine, “Puzzle Fonts About Puzzles”, in Exchange Book of the 14th Gathering for Gardner (G4G14), Atlanta, Georgia, April 6–10, 2022.

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.

The talk is available on YouTube.
