Chess Problem Font (not what you think :-)


There must be gazillions of symbol problems (including the
accidentally ones). Especially dedications are a good source.

Can you help in collecting all letters from A to Z? Maybe
some surplus ASCII too? :-) (And maybe there is even already
a monography on symbol problems present.)

Some preferences:
- no material which is just present for the symbolism
- orthodox 2# (but that's personal :-)
- unambiguous letters (a 3*3 "pixel" H can be turned
into a M with diagonal help lines, but that's cheating,
so for a good M you need 5*5 at least)

My "easter egg" on MPF is a nice O, and yesterday I composed an X
and had the idea for this post.

A.J.Taffs specialised in letter problems. I think composed all letters, though perhaps not in #2.

pdb.dieschwalbe.de, search query K='Letter problem' will give you a lot of letter problems.
