Abstract : Students of Egyptian history face economic and technological constraints in the reproduction of hieroglyphs. Ideally, they need a system which provides a collection of professional quality symbols and a means to arrange and integrate them in print. The Apple Macintosh and a laser printer font might offer a reasonable and inexpensive solution. The goal of this project is to develop that font and, in so doing, provide a model for solving similar problems in the reproduction of unusual, non-Latin characters.
