Freya with the letter KFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

The unusual pattern of the Kawung Textile font caught my eye, but I had no idea what the name meant or if it actually meant anything at all. So as I usually do in these situations, I asked my good friend Mr. Google. I learned “the Kawung is one of the oldest batik motifs, consisting of a four lobed stylised flower, based on the Areca Palm blossom.” And that it “has many symbolic meanings, its association to the palm blossom indicates purity and honesty, while the palm fruit refers to fertility and hope.” Very cool – and how great that a font actually taught me something!

Another font with an interesting pattern and an usual name was Karamuruh, but when I googled it, all I found were references to the font. So if someone knows an actual meaning for Karamuruh, please let me know in the comments.

The Kids Kas was another one of those I picked just because it made me grin when I saw it.

I thought the intricate intertwining of Knot made for a fascinating font.

Love the old school video game style of Karmatic Arcade, and it’s my inspiration for today’s tweet tale.

After 36 hrs straight,he’s about to beat the final boss. His sister unplugs the console. Karmic justice for tattling to Dad about her party.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Kissable is Freya with her letter K?

Those are some very clever fonts! They might be good in posters or flyers, don't you think?

These come a long way from Arial and Times New Roman, don't they? :p

I'm not sure if knot would be that legible but it's certainly interesting...

The Knot is beautiful, but a little hard to read. My mom is a quilter so I especially love Karamuruh. :)

LOVE the font idea (and I really, really love the pics with the dogs). A post about fonts would probably go great on my blog, if you're ever up to contributing a guest post somewhere. Email me if you are! :)
