Legata Font by DeviantKirigishi Legata Font by DeviantKirigishi
Being the music geek I am, I decided I'd try to create a font comprised entirely of stylized music symbols. It works better when written by hand, as these computer-drawn symbols are not quite equalized yet. 

Anyway, here's the glossary:
A - appoggiatura
B - alto clef
C - common time
D - bass clef
E - quarter rest
F - sharp
G - treble clef 
H - caesura
I - cut
J - eighth note
K - segno
L - eighth note
M - mordent
N - down bow
O - coda
P - half note
Q - natural
R - appoggiatura
S - arpeggiated chord
T - left-hand pizzicato/stopped note
U - slur
V - up bow
W - variable pedal
X - double sharp
Y - eighth rest
Z - diminuendo+crescendo

Thanks! "Legata" is just the font name, like "Arial" or "Times New Roman". It's the name I've adopted for almost all my music-themed original content.

Wow! That's really cool! Is what I'd be saying if I did music. 8D

Uh, no, that was a joke. I do essentially understand all the things, even if it is basic, basic knowledge. It's still pretty damn awesome, and I legit think you did a goof job with these.

Although, I am curious...Any plans for them?

Heh, thanks. Glad you like it.

The initial plan was to use this font for name tags in a music-themed event coming up in the fall. I'm not sure if that's still going to be a thing, but regardless, I'm glad I did this.
