Alphameric X Y Matrix Display Type Family

This constrained type family possesses the advantages of a 12-element rectangular character such as the OQR and the MQP type families with a more conventional appearance for all alphabetic and numeric characters.

The elements 1-12 are shown separated for clarity in the first line. While the curved quartering elements 9-12 are not necessarily truly hyperbolic, the ready association with the mathematical hyperbola lends itself as a descriptor.

Slant characters can be made and read as readily as upright characters.
