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 for free within the bounds of the GPL.

I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources. 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). You can see from the fact that my fonts are used in so many films that their quality is no less than that of other fonts. However, as the owner of all rights over these fonts, I give you the option of using them without paying.

If you are using the fonts for business purposes and your business model includes rewarding those who have invested in the intellectual property 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 and 7 days a week, along with the other bills that go with that and so on.
