Sefer - Hebrew for 'letter' or 'book scroll', is a roman font made from elements of the Hebrew alphabet. Not an irregular or calligraphic imitation of Hebrew writing like similar faces (such as 'Shalom' or 'Moses'), but reminding of ordinary print letters.
There is no distinction between upper- and lowercase, like in the Hebrew alphabet itself. The beginnings of 'Sefer AH' go back to the year 2000 when it was discussed extensively in the usenet group 'alt.binaries.fonts'.
The 'H' follows a suggestion from Melissa Windsor. The German double s goes back to Fred Nader (aka 'apostrophe') who proposed it then. I refused to include it at that time, since there is no uppercase German double s. But now that the Unicode Consortium has meanwhile given the Uppercase Germandbls an Unicode number, I changed my mind and now (version 1.40, April 2013) let you make the choice as to whether to use it or not.
Sefer AH font contains 232 defined characters and 125 unique glyphs.
The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (93), Latin-1 Supplement (96), Latin Extended-A (10), Latin Extended-B (1), Spacing Modifier Letters (3), Greek and Coptic (1), General Punctuation (16), Currency Symbols (1), Letterlike Symbols (1), Mathematical Operators (2).
