linja pona

sitelen pona is a script for toki pona.

The hieroglyphs were created by Sonja Lang, the creator of toki pona. They appear in Toki Pona: The Language of Good.

I have created a font called linja pona, it means “simple line”. With linja pona, I wanted to create a standard font that was simple and that could be read easily at different sizes.

Version 4

This version uses OpenType features to dynamically compose compound glyphs, rather than relying on including precomposed glyphs in the font. As a result, it allows over 6,000 new compound glyphs (screenshot) to be used. It also has better webfont support.

Usage

To use compound glyphs, put a hyphen or plus between two words, e.g.: toki-pona, linja+pona

To use cartouches, use square brackets and underscores before each glyph, e.g.: ma [_kasi_alasa_nasin_awen_telo_aa] li suli
