About CDC Hand fonts

CDC Hand is a set of 3 fonts meant to be a fallback font. Why 3 fonts: a font cannot have more than 65535 glyph and Unicode curently has 149186 caracters.

The font has a hand typeface because it is faster to make, but it will still take years since I am doing it by myself and am not a professional designer.

The project is about the same as Google Noto fonts but simpler and in only 3 files

Supported blocks


The plan is to do all blocks from Basic Latin to Cyrillic Supplement, this will be version 1 of the font.

Afterwards I will do the blocks where I’m missing caracters with the font installed on my computer. These are the following blocks (with no specific order):
Combining Diacritical Marks Extended,
Vedic Extensions,
Combining Diacritical Marks Supplement,
Enclosed CJK Letters and Months,
CJK Unified Ideographs Extension A,
Arabic Presentation Forms-A,
Egyptian Hieroglyphs,
Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs,
Transport and Map Symbols,
Supplemental Symbols and Pictographs.

And finally I will do all remaining blocks from the newest Unicode implement to the oldest one.
