Cowboy example


Cowboy example

Cowboy is a cipher font based on authentic cattle brands from the Old West. It is a simple substitution cipher, but it is definitely unusual in appearance and unique among fonts. It would be perfect for creating borders for game handouts, character sheets, etc., for Western-themed games, and also an interesting addition to an escape room's puzzles.

A substitution cipher can, naturally, use anything one wants for its letters and numbers. Cattle brands are emblematic of the West and both simple and distinctive in form; they were a natural for a unique cipher font. The symbols are all authentic brands that were used in the Old West; the font documentation lists their names and users, where known.

There are four faces for Cowboy: Regular, Bold, Italic which is an outline form, and Bold Italic which is the weathered version, which certainly fits with the theme.

Be sure to take a look at Wintertree's other fonts, including ancient and esoteric alphabets, dice, ciphers, hieroglyphs, and many other useful fonts for gamers.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
