A family of liquid-crystal-style typefaces.

LCD (and its variants) is an upper-case-only typeface. The lower-case characters are identical to the upper-case characters, with the exception of the letters "J", "M", "W", and "Y". To see the difference between the upper- and lower-case symbols, enter the alphabet in both upper- and lower-case in your word processor, and set the font to LCD. I recommend that you use either all upper-case or all lower-case characters with this font.

The LCD font family contains the following fonts:

  • LCD-Normal -- a liquid-crystal-display-style font with an 8-degree slant. Numerals are monospaced for column alignment, but the font is otherwise proportionally-spaced.

  • LCD-Bold -- the bold version of LCD.

  • LCD-Light -- a lighter-weight version of LCD.

  • LCD-Ultra -- the ultra-bold version of LCD.


  • LCD2-Normal -- Same as LCD-Normal, but with wider gaps between character elements (twice as wide, in fact).

  • LCD2-Bold -- the bold version of LCD2.

  • LCD2-Light -- a lighter-weight version of LCD2.

  • LCD2-Ultra -- the ultra-bold version of LCD2.

This font was inspired by, and is very close in appearance to, the one used on the covers of the Full Thrust and More Thrust miniatures wargame rulebooks from Ground Zero Games.

LCD-Bold (uppercase) is a good match for the typeface used on the covers of Ground Zero Games' "Full Thrust" and "More Thrust" rulebooks. For smaller type sizes at lower resolutions (such as 72dpi screens), I recommend that you use LCD2.

If you use both large and small type in the same layout or graphic, you may want to use LCD for the large type and LCD2 for the small type. For example, for the Full Thrust banner graphic, you may want to use LCD-Bold/72 pt for "Full Thrust" and LCD2-Bold/30 pt for "Fleet Actions in Deep Space".

These fonts are available in TrueType format for Windows and Macintosh. If you need a Postscript version of these fonts, please contact the author at the email address listed above.
