PG Bhojanshala font

PG Bhojanshala font comparison The 'PG Bhojanshala' family is a facsimile of a person's handwriting and is provided in Bold.

On the right, you can see examples of PG Bhojanshala and PG Mansa (Bold), sized and spaced so that the height of the ਸ is he same and also, the leading has been adjusted so that the lines are equally spaced. In this way, you can see that with these two fonts, the ascenders and descenders are roughly the same in relation to the body of the line content.

Whereas Mansa has a slope to the left, as though somebody who is left-handed as written it, Bhojanshala has roughly the same slope to the right.

One other thing to note is that the body text of Bhojanshala fits into a smaller space and together with the letter-spacing, is better suited to small writing such as that in letters or, as suggested by the name, in the hand-written notes that waiters produce for restaurant orders - in the case of the first example below, the order from the English restaurant in India in the famous 'going out for an English' sketch from the British hit comedy, Goodness Gracious Me.

As always, the font characters are in the Unicode space for Gurmukhi and in the phonetic ASCII range.

Note that the Adhak and the Tippee are fairly wide so if you find that they have collided with another above-the-line feature such as a sihari, you can use the short space mapped to the underscore key to add extra space with a line as required.

You are free to use these fonts for personal or commercial use although you are forbidden to: charge for them; or, modify and distribute the modified font. If you want something different or even completely new for a specific purpose, email me - see below.

I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that morally, everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources - In this way, those who genuinely have not got the money to pay a license fee for a font use can continue to access this resource for free. If I insisted on charging for them then you would be looking at anything from around £50 for a single user to £10,000 for a single multinational film production (see here for an idea of the going rates for charged-for fonts from those who do insist that you always pay for commercial use).

If you are using the fonts for business purposes and your business model includes paying those that have produced resources that you are using, then you might want to consider making a contribution towards the time, artistic and technological investment that I have made in these fonts as well as the ongoing costs of running and maintaining a production server 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
