Jig Font (TM) - Picture Puzzles inside True Type Fonts  How It Works

Jig Font puzzle piece exampleJig FontsTM are just True Type fonts, just like the fonts you use for writing documents in your word processor.

But Jig FontsTM are more than that - each character (or letter) is part of a bigger image. (See example opposite)

What you have to do is work out the order in which to type the characters to complete the puzzle.

Complete The Puzzle

Turn Your Own Handwriting Into A True Type Font!To do the complete puzzle, the best thing to do is to open up a new document in your favourite word processor and change the font to JF_Liberty.ttf. You may also want to change the size of the font so that the pieces are easier to see.

Type out the letters from A to Z and a to i.

Then start trying to piece the picture together by cutting (Ctrl + X) and pasting (Ctrl + V) the characters from your typed list onto a new line. Cut and Paste can also be selected from the 'Edit' menu or by right clicking on the piece you want to cut.

Remember that the characters will behave just like any other font in a word processor - you'll need to press the enter key to start a new line and if you delete or add a character it will move other pieces on the same line.

In other words - it's not as easy as it looks!!
