Circle/enclosure font?

This is a bit embarrassing… I need some options for fonts that include native circular enclosures. A while back there was a discussion of fonts that have enclosures built into them. There were several good options suggested… one of which I contributed… and for the life of me, I can’t find the thread!

Anyone?

Was it this one, perhaps?

Just so, thanks Leo. The one I was looking for was the one Romanos suggested. Cheers!

I’ve just seen your screenshot on the Facebook thread. You started on that job quickly :wink:

Yeah, I’m still looking for an easier solution. Probably going to spend more time looking than I would spend doing it manually… ah well.

You could also use any font that defines the Enclosed Alphanumerics region of Unicode. Most fonts that render these are sans-serif; Quivira is the only serif option I can find. It also has some options for multiple characters enclosed in a circle or ellipse in the Private Use Area.

For anyone not following the Facebook post on MET, here’s a great font I found: Download The Brill Typeface
