Gurmukhi Lipi

Gurmukhi on the brain!!

After a two-month hiatus, here I am! Ready to post some kind of strange script-evolution image from Piara Singh Padam's Gurmukhi Lipi da Itihas. (click image to enlarge)

Essential, awesome, recommended reading: Uni. Reading graduate Emma Williams' A Comparative Study of the Development of Gurmukhi Script

I've been linked to a great Gurmukhi site, curiously called Billie the cat... lots of great handwritten examples and fonts created by Paul Grosse.

ਰਮਨਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ also wishes to share with us a FontStruct creation of his, LED Gurmukhi. Check it out, all! Speaking of which, has anyone spotted any other complete fonts in Indic scripts yet? Also, congrats to Paul for being a FontStruct featured designer!

And last but not least for today's post-o-rama, I'm officially a member of Twitter! Haha! If any of you would like to follow/be followed, I'm HindiRinny.

With practice, I may someday learn to use both twitter and this blog regularly! Heh. Cross your fingers.
