About NaN Weiss

NaN Weiss is a re-imagining and extension of Emil Rudolf Weiß’ Weiss-Kapitale Kräftig through the constraints of a fixed-width frame. In blending the scriptural associations of Weiß’ lettering-turned-font with the cold metronomy of a monospace we arrive at a clash of times and worlds; the humanist and the algorithmic, the religious and the technocratic. The result is warm but jarring, as if we have stumbled across an alien almost-successfully pretending to be human.

The family comes in a collection of 10 distinct weights ranging from a skeletal thin to an overweight extra black. Please see the PDF for more details regarding language support, the complete glyph-set and extended samples.

The Klingon Language Institute regards the following works as canon Klingon; they serve as sources of Klingon vocabulary and grammar for all other works. In March 2018, the popular language learning site Duolingo opened a beta course in Klingon. After it proved its effectiveness, the company offered to promote it from beta status, but due to ongoing software issues regarding Klingon's unexpected use of upper- and lower-case letters and the apostrophe as a consonant instead of punctuation, the course developers chose not to accept the offer until the problems were addressed.
Data was the fifth and next-to-last model created by Soong and his then-wife Juliana on the Omicron Theta science colony.
In 1970, Peter Schmidt created “The Thoughts Behind the Thoughts”, a box containing 55 sentences letterpress printed onto disused prints that accumulated in his studio, which is still in Eno’s possession. Eno, who had known Schmidt since the late 1960s, had been pursuing a similar project himself, which he had handwritten onto a number of bamboo cards and given the name “Oblique Strategies” in 1974. There was a significant overlap between the two projects, and so, in late 1974, Schmidt and Eno combined them into a single pack of cards and offered them for general sale. The set went through three limited edition printings before Schmidt suddenly died in early 1980, after which the card decks became rather rare and expensive. Sixteen years later software pioneer Peter Norton convinced Eno to let him create a fourth edition as Christmas gifts for his friends (not for sale, although they occasionally come up at auction). Eno’s decision to revisit the cards and his collaboration with Norton in revising them is described in detail in his 1996 book A Year with Swollen Appendices. With public interest in the cards undiminished, in 2001 Eno once again produced a new set of Oblique Strategies cards. The number and content of the cards vary according to the edition. In May 2013 a limited edition of 500 boxes, in burgundy rather than black, was issued.

One Klingon speaker, d'Armond Speers, raised his son Alec to speak Klingon as a first language, whilst the boy's mother communicated with him in English.
