I’m certain that most of you illusion purists are already very familiar with the Penrose triangle illusion as it has already been featured extensively on the site. That being said, this great impossible font titled “Frustro” by its creator Martzi Hegedűs brings an entirely new angle (pardon the phun) to this classic illusion.

The Impossible Font

While Hegedűs has not yet added a download option so you can actually use the font yourself, he does show how it was created and the page also shows every letter and symbol in the font so someone else could, hypothetically, turn it into a useable font.

The Impossible Font

He even added an example of the font in action in what I think would be a great poster for Moillusions, complete with the impossible triangle that inspired the project.

The Impossible Font

What do you guys think, if you could download this font, would you actually use it? Personally, I think it’s just impossible enough that even Escher would love to type with it, were he still around.

    yes that’s right impossible to create

  2. Tish says:

    That is definitely cool. Still very easy to read and only closer inspection does your brain start realizing that something isn’t quite right.

      Think about it and you’ll realise that is a snippet from a song!!

    That’s neat. But it’s my understanding that if you use it and whoever is reading it doesn’t have it on their computer, it will be rendered in whatever font is the closest to it. What we’re seeing here is not actually the font itself, but images (jpg).
    Correct me if I’m wrong.

    Cool, I likes that. If I could get hold of the font, I would type all kind of messages with it. For now, I will just print out the “impossibility” message and stick onto my wall..
