Pretty much every font I can think of is in a sort of portrait, paper-proportioned-ish grid, sort of like this:
_ | | |_|
A 1x2 grid fits tall letters like
l and short letters at the bottom like
s. This is the rectangle grid. But Chinese characters fit into a square grid:
___ | | |___|
So you can fit in characters such as 漢 which is like a ■ square.
I'm wondering if there are any such "square" fonts for Latin scripts. Just to be clear, I don't mean square, boxy font styles like this. I just mean some sort of squarely proportioned way of designing the Latin lower and uppercase characters so it looks good.
I haven't (1) found any examples yet, let alone (2) ones that look nice. I would like to see some nice examples if there are some out there.
