FF Beadmap began life as a bit of fun with plastic Hama Beads from Denmark. Ian Wright’s children received a set for Christmas, and so he started making little heads with them, as well as type pictures based on embroidered samplers. Wright sent David Crow one of these for a wedding present. Crow liked the idea of making this into a workable font, and so he digitized it.
FF Beadmap supports 63 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
