Hershey Noailles

font, identity

The Hershey fonts are a collection of vector fonts developed c. 1967 by Dr. Allen Vincent Hershey at the Naval Weapons Laboratory, and originally designed to be rendered using vectors on early cathode ray tube displays. Decomposing curves to connected straight lines allowed Hershey to produce complex typographic designs. In their original form the font data consists simply in a series of coordinates, meant to be connected by straight lines on the screen. We forked hersheytextjs and made it a program that defines strokes in css, then exports it as a font.
