A classic Halloween visual. Here’s a skeleton font from a new-to-me source: home machine embroidery. How the embroidery works: you install software from a website or disk and it tells your home embroidery machine—your enhanced sewing machine or dedicated device—how to make the letterforms or designs. This alphabet was developed by trishsthreads.com and is available here in several embroidery machine formats and two sizes for $7.99. You can contact trishsthreads at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: I’m showing these letters for viewing purposes only. Please don’t use them for online or print purposes.
Here’s the font in action:
a series of ethereal photographs by greek artist anastasia mastrakouli utilizes the nude human form to highlight the dialectical relationship between anatomy and visual art. each image is the product of an experimental performance, rendered as a composition of a silhouette and surface while conforming to the shape of the english alphabet. cut off from its physical nature, the corporeal becomes an abstracted imprint of a letter.

The only people perhaps more obsessive than type designers are builders of model aircraft. TLai Enterprises offers a font for sale called AmarilloUSAF. With its straight lines and blocky look, AmarilloUSAF provides the correct, forthright feel of the real thing. See also my post Fightin’ Font Friday 2, fonts from action movie posters.
