----------

Vectatype is an artistic font.
Inspired by the 7 segment display, vectatype uses the 11 segment display to represent ASCII.

Installation:
mk install
font=/lib/font/bit/vectatype/vectatype.8.0000-007F

Constraints:
Use the 11 segment display to represent all of ASCII.
An English speaker should reasonably pick up on the font.
All lowercase letters must use the lower 6 segment box.
Uppercase letters must use both upper and lower boxes.
All letters and numbers must span the width.
