The Average Font

I came across this post post where the author created a font by averaging together all fonts on his machine. I thought it would be cool to do the same for all fonts on the internet -- here's the average of about 375k distinct fonts

It's interesting that shapes are clearly seen even though fonts on the web are quite noisy, here's a random sample of things that make up the A above

I especially like the two guys carrying a dead goat.

How did you determine that fonts were distinct?

Yaroslav Bulatov said...

They are distinct if the binary files are not bit-by-bit identical. So there are probably a few hundred copies of Arial, Helvetica, etc
