Rebus Script™

By Ascender

Rebus Script is a fun, lively font that lets you create rebus puzzles by automatically replacing certain words or syllables with pictures. Rebus Script is an advanced OpenType font that requires an application that supports Contextual Alternates. The Rebus Script font was created by Terrance Weinzierl and is based on the Louisville Script handwriting font designed by Steve Matteson. To use Rebus Script you simply type a word like 'sun' or 'son' and those letters will automatically be replaced by a picture of the sun. There are over 70 pictorial symbols in Rebus Script that make up the 'vocabulary' for automatic substitution based on over 300 different syllable/word combinations in various cases (lower, upper, titling) in the English language.

The Rebus Script font is perfect for casual correspondence, advertising and web graphics and can be used to embellish greeting cards, scrapbooks, menus, flyers, presentations and advertisements. NOTE: An OpenType-savvy application such as Adobe Creative Suite or QuarkXPress (on Windows or Mac OS X), Mellel or iWork (with Mac OS X 10.5+) is required to access the Rebus graphics using the Contextual Alternatives feature.
