What?

What is Llama Font? It's a font made of llamas. Use it to write out any message you'd like.

It's especially helpful in taking the edge off of bad news. Need to send a harsh message to a loved one? Helvetica is cold. Say it in llama.

Need to make a confession? Times New Roman is just rude. Say it in llama.

Here are some examples

Here is an example I created myself of the kind of bad news related to translation that could be passed using "llama" font.

I must say I'm glad they didn't have fonts like this in the 17th and 18th centuries, otherwise we might be reading Swift or Pope in them!
