New Alphabet, the typeface by Wim Crouwel, was designed to embrace the limitations of the cathode ray tube technology used by early data display screens and phototypesetting equipment, and thus only contains horizontal and vertical strokes.

Crouwel wanted to adapt his design to work for the new technologies, instead of adapting the technologies to meet the design.

This web-tool enables you to play with the New Alphabet as it was intended.
