    @Stygg—

    If you'd like some inspiration (from me??!?) or just a neat background, here's my contribution to better alchemy through science:

    It's a whole bunch of alchemy symbols for metals, plus a few Celtic runes characters.

    Thank you Francis, glad you liked. I also look forward to what csehz comes up with? I knew I'd push him into doing the symbol and besides he comes up with some neat ideas.

    The Book of Signs, originally published in 1934 written by Rudolph Koch (who was also a typographer and did a few nice fonts) is largely a book you can download for free if you subscribe to some reading site (who charge $).

    But Google books will show you several pages from the eBook, along with explanations of symbols.

    Example?

    Just remember that with Frances' tutorialóand just a lot of tutorial we have hereóyou're not limited to a target shape the author provided! I have the hardest time convincing people who have bought a book I wrote (so why am I complaining?!) that you don't have to start or stop at the file I provided. Use you own along with the principle I shared with you.

    Improvise.

    Innovate.

    Recreate.
