Ancient font: Mulawarman by Alteaven Ancient font: Mulawarman by Alteaven
Experimental font for the ancient Pallava script used in ancient South and Southeast Asia. 

I don't think I'll be able to complete this, the script has SO MUCH irregularities that EACH diacritic-letter combination and consonant stacking are unique ligature. That requires a lot of glyph, not to mention the variants. Admittedly though, that's what make this script beautiful. (The shapes here are based on the pallava script table in the website below)

The text is an extract from Kakawin Ramayana:

Jahnii yaahning talaga kadi langit. Mambang tang pas wulan upamanika. Wintang tulya ng kusuma ya sumawur. Lumra pwakang sari kadi jalada.

(roughly translated) The lake's water are as clear as sky. A turtle floats as if the moon. Scattered flowers are the stars. With it's scent spreading as if clouds.

Purwarupa font untuk aksara Pallawa yang digunakan di Asia Selatan dan Asia Tenggara kuno. Anda mungkin ingat nama tulisan ini dari pelajaran sejarah SD atau SMP: "Prasasti tertua di Indonesia adalah prasasti Yupa dari kerajaan Kutai yang ber-aksara Pallawa"

Kemungkinan font ini tidak akan selesai. Karena sifatnya yang dekoratif dan tidak standar, SETIAP kombinasi huruf-tanda baca atau antar huruf harus dibikin SATU-SATU. Kebanyakan. Tapi jujur, itulah yang membuat aksara ini indah. (Bentuk yang digunakan disini berdasarkan tabel Pallawa di website bawah)

Sampel teks dari Kakawin Ramayana:

Jahnii yaahning talaga kadi langit. Mambang tang pas wulan upamanika. Wintang tulya ng kusuma ya sumawur. Lumra pwakang sari kadi jalada.

Air telaga jernih bagaikan langit. Seekor kura-kura yang mengambang seolah-olah bulan. Bintang-bintangnya adalah bunga-bunga yang tersebar. Menyebarlah sari-sarinya, seakan-akan awan.
