A few years ago when Joachim Müller-Lancé was doodling shapes on paper, he made the following observation: My sketches revealed how letterforms can be perceived not only as black strokes on a white background, but also as shapes punching through one another. Thus was Shuriken Boy born. Seen alone, many of its characters dont look like letters at all; only their combination indicates text. Its a futuristic look often seen in Japanese Manga comics and high-tech graphics. In fact, the name Shuriken Boy was inspired by William Gibsons sci-fi novel, Neuromancer, in which a star-shaped Ninja weapon - a shuriken - appears as the heros talisman. The dynamic, triangular characters of Shuriken Boy are certain to add dramatic flair to high-tech tool or product packaging, toys and games, book titles, clothing labels, and computer user-group logos.
Menu Names And Style Linking
The fonts in this family have no style links: none are a bold or italic
variant of another.
You should note that selecting a style option such
as bold or italic with any of these faces will either have no effect,
or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font,
which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
