gems font family (dingbats with ligatures)

Watermarked PDF

gems is a dingbat font family about polyhedral dice. It inserts dice icons as you type things like d8 and d6.5

gems Precise is inspired in old-school dice, with hard edges and stark aesthetics.
gems Polished has rounded edges like tumbled, modern dice. It works well with a multitude of text fonts. Very readable.
gems Metallic speaks by itself.
gems Antique is a distressed beauty that emulates the look of old press printing, and looks wonderful next to serif text.
gems Minimal is a simplified variant, with iconic dice and bigger numbers. Use it when readability and printing quality matter - like small sizes.

Each font includes common dice (4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20 faces), an alternate d6 with pips, and comes with a variant, named Black. The Black fonts are inversed-color, high contrast versions with better performance on display.

The fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License. In short: pay once, use forever. You can use them for commercial purposes but not resell or redistribute the fonts.
NOTE: to get the maximum out of the font you have to use it in a software that supports open type ligatures. Any app by Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, or anything that has multilingual support is ready to go.
If your preferred program does not support opentype you can still use it as a regular dingbat font, inserting manually each character.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
