I ran across The Daily Pangram via
apollinax localcharacter today. [note: sorry apollinax, localcharacter: obviously the two of you share some handsome-and-wickedly-smart-fellow coordinates in my personal social space.]
Here's what would be involved, as I see it:
- Writing out Daily Pangram examples on lined paper.
- Scanning them.
- Vectorizing to SVG. (Alternatively, writing the pangrams directly to rulers on Inkscape.)
- Using FontForge to assemble these into full-blown fonts (of at least the ASCII set).
- building a .deb file so that it can be shared with other Debian/Ubuntu/etc
- building a .ttf file so that it can be shared with other operating systems
This is definitely one of those "copious free time" projects, which is why I have thrown it out here, as a reminder and an aspiration.
