about gridfont7:

Following the spirit of Sol Lewitt's wall drawing instructions, gridfont7 was generated using simple instructions executed by A. Bill Miller to create a set of decorative glyphs. Some glyphs were repeated - this was done for special character symbols and non-English language characters (for example). When applied to any text sample, gridfont7 becomes an aesthetic and conceptual representation of language. gridfont7 is a custom True Type Font created with FontForge.

Example instructions followed for drawing the glyphs of gridfont7:
