A fellow puzzler asked me to help him identify a font he'd used in putting together a publication he'd made some years ago before techie typogs were running around digitizing everything in sight. Neither I nor the folks at Typophile could say for sure, but someone thought it could be something called Grock. Gangue is a G-rock: it's the stuff left over after you extract the vein of gold from your ore. GangueOuais isn't this font's original name, but given the, um, naughty nature of the publication in question, I can't tell you what the original name was.

Hindsight looking forward. Keep checking for more added blocks, but be ye warned: some of them are scary-looking and may never get made.

A baby Unicode font with only the first half-dozen blocks in it or so. None of the combining diacritics are in here because they involve glyphs that have zero advance width, which would make this not a fixed-width font. At least according to all the experimenting I did.

This font has been updated to Unicode 4.0 and Enigmatic 2, making, um, I dunno, Unatic 6-and-change.

A hard-nosed little font that will protect the borders at all costs. This font includes not only the complete Latin alphabet that all my fonts do these days, but also the complete Russian alphabet, so you can warn your sentries behind the Iron Curtain in your 80's spy novel.
