I rather liked the curved variant that was up immediately before this, but I can understand why you want to go in this direction. No chance you've been reading Hofstadter's _Metamagical Themas_? His "Letter Spirit" article uses a grid very similar to your current Tinkerfont work. I saw it today whilst doing the requisite bathroom reading. P
