When I was studying in Rome, I saw lots of churches. So I saw lots of crosses, too. I got really interested in the variety of crosses that churches had -- from very ornate to plain and simple. But I had never made a dingbat font, so I didn't want to try. Then I saw in the newsgroups that someone was looking for one, and no one had a good one. So I went ahead with it.

Crosses mean a lot to me. It symbolizes when Jesus died for our sins. No one knows what the real cross really looked like (even though I saw the "real" cross in a church in Rome). So there are many adaptations. But they all hold the same meaning. Please only use this font in a way that is glorifying to God.

In this font, I have included a wide variety of crosses. Some traditional and some not. I have included some Celtic crosses, an Assisi cross (a Greek Tau), some crosses that were cut out of wood, and some that I just thought looked neat.

I would like to find more crosses, and make another font with those. If you know of any that I didn't include, but are cool, tell me about them. My e-mail is included.
