Fictional Languages and their Fonts

April 20th, 2009 by Laura Moncur in Literature

Klinzhai AlphabetThe fantastic science fiction blog, io9, has an article about alien languages that have shown up in fiction over the years. They have a list of 13 languages and links to fonts so you can use them your own computer.

Inventing an alien language? Easy. Creating an entire writing system to go along with it? Now that’s impressive. Here are thirteen alien alphabets (complete with downloadable fonts!) you should totally use to write your novel.

It surprises me how much work some writers put into their movies, novels and comics. Creating a universe in which characters live is difficult, but going to the trouble of creating a 118 character language is even more detail oriented. I’m so grateful for all the creativity that writers have given to their work.
