About the Klingon pIqaD fonts
These three fonts were desgined in 2004–2005 by Mike Neff (qa’vaj), who made them freely available in 2009. I modified the fonts with FontLab to ensure that the character names and font headers conformed to modern standards. I also fixed the kerning tables in Klingon pIqaD vaHbo’. In Klingon pIqaD HaSta and Klingon pIqaD Mandel I set a uniform width to all the digits.
Klingon pIqaD HaSta ‘viewscreen writing’ is a standard Klingon typeface.
Klingon pIqaD Mandel takes the Klinzhai or Mandel font glyphs (really a different alphabet from the KLI’s Standard pIqaD) and refits them for use as pIqaD.
Klingon pIqaD vaHbo’ is a whimsical variety. Its name vaHbo’ ‘lava’ evokes the free forms of hot wax in a lava lamp.
The encoding of all of these fonts conforms to the ConScript Unicode Registry registration for Klingon pIqaD.
