So I'm working on a project to document and provide a resource for "Aurebesh" fonts and other fonts seen in the Star Wars universe. (The above is Sacul Basic.)

A lot of fans have created a lot of fonts over the years, so I'm trying to collect them and put them all in one place. Obviously this is not a one-person job, and I need help tracking some fonts down, and a lot of help determining which ones are the most screen-accurate.

The project is open-source and online at https://AurekFonts.github.io


EDIT: CORRECTED MISSPELLING IN URL

The first Aurebesh font out there was from the SW Monopoly game.
Possibly predating that was The Star Wars Roleplaying Game by West End Games.
There have been variations in some of the letters, numbers and punctuation as well as stroke size and even hand written.
Galaxy's Edge has hand outs so you can read the signs.

Other fonts include those seen in the Dark Forces games (Dark Katarn), Naboo (Futhark, Futhork), Hutt (Huttese, Nal-Huttese), Trade Federation, Mandalorian, Ewok, McQuarrie art (Yavin 4 Temple - Metal Rebel), Sith.
For Sith there is the original "Sith Prophecy" and the later visual dictionary holocrom reversed Aurebesh.

I'm still waiting for the other fonts used in Rogue One and Galaxy's Edge.

Seeing a lot of handwritten material from the new sacred Jedi texts too: Protobesh and Coremaic - although much of the source material is too blurry to make out any distinct characters...I will try and upload what I have found a little later today.

West Ends was first, and I've linked on my Aurebesh page to a history of it by the guy who made it up.

Rogue One: We actually have "Domabesh" from Rogue One, as best as it can be recreated at this point (J, Q, V, and X are all best-guesses, but probably wrong). We're still waiting on a font for "Dishabesh", (Enfys' helmet, lots of concept art).

Galaxy's Edge: We have 2 fonts used, but not the main Aurebesh flavor: Aurebesh_english is used for the English text throughout the park, while Aurebesh_droid can be found at the Droid Depot.

I'm happy to say that we have pages in the works for most of the fonts/scripts you mentioned above.

All from the RoS Visual Dictionary, the last 2 are from the Art Of book I believe.

The "Cascading Coremaic" text seems to have been reused-verbatim in multiple places, which may make defining the individual glyphs a little easier. thanks!
I agree.

I count only 22 or so unique characters of the Protobesh...though there may be more lost in the script given some closer inspection.

The R1 Aurebesh is interesting and I found the Domabesh image a year or so ago (sorry, cannot recall the source to credit).

Droid Depot is seen around GE. Reed over on Astromech posted what he had compiled a while back.
