Are there “bi-form” fonts that don’t have descenders?

Is there a font that displays the entire image of each and every one of the 52 English alphabet shapes "a""z" and "A""Z" above (on) the baseline?


  • Examples of shapes that are rejected due to baseline overflow:

  • Some users had stated that this is not possible. But it is possible. I’ve thought of at least two solutions:

    1. The tail could sent upwards instead of downwards.

    2. The tail could be shortened and the entire alphabet shifted upwards, as such (yes my drawing is awkward, but that’s the idea):

  • I only need a font that supports the basic English alphabets "a""z" and "A""Z", but it’s great if it could support arabic numerals 0 ➝ 9 too.


Hobo, designed as early as 1910, is a no-descender font:

Caveat: with its design heavily influenced by the Art Nouveau style of the 1890s-1920s, it is not useful for general application.
