Sometimes readability just isn't the point!
I've been bingeing on pixel fonts for three days now, and am getting a bit punchy.
Interesting to me sometimes, how one font will jump out of a single letter from another font:
A. Trixie. I've been tinkering with this idea for months. Different sized pixels within a letter form.
B. I wanted to spread out the letters with a better balance of little pixels to big pixels. The S and Z led the way, and ended up leading me to an interesting P and R.
C. I decided to follow the P and R and see where it would take me. I thought it might make for an interesting unicase. the p and q looked okay. the b and d looked terrible. but they led me to consider a five pixel wide grid instead of a seven-wide.
D. The lower case set just jumped right out of my mouse. The upper case isn't as good, but I felt good about getting an UC regardless.
E. Woo-hoo! A bold works too! (three days and counting, remember?)
F. WOW! Italics works too!
Ah, well, it's fun pushing pixels anyway.
