the use of variable fonts to emphasize the impact of words in creative writing, such as concrete poetry.
Fontics is the use of italics for a word like flicker, bold face for a word like dark, and symbols instead of letters to suggest meaning as in st*r (for star). Example: twinkle, twinkle little st*r (sorry, couldn't get italics (twinkle) or font size (little) to adjust in this message box)
