A word about the Glyphotext Library and the glyphs

All the hieroglyphs (glyphs) in Glyphotext are original. They were created using two specific Vector Graphics editor applications (Real Draw and Inkscape). Created graphics were saved in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. The data is then optimized and used by Glyphotext's own graphic engine.

As for the design of the glyphs, it rests on an analysis of the hieroglyph style from the New Kingdom period, starting with the glyphs found in the tomb of Rekhmire (XVIIIth dynasty). To supplement these, other sources were used: the tomb of Queen Nefertari, the texts from the pyramid of Ounas and some stelae from the Middle Kingdom.
