In physics, the shower-curtain effect is the phenomenon in which a shower curtain gets blown inward with a running shower. The problem of the cause of this effect has been featured in Scientific American magazine, with several theories given to explain the phenomenon but no definite conclusion. As a second meaning, the fact that nearby phase front distortions of an optical wave are more severe than remote distortions of the same amplitude is called shower-curtain effect.

Font description

——————— English ———————

The Ouroboros or uroborus is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. Ouroboros is also a font for alchemists, witches, heretics, outsiders and curious people in general. It's inspired by early art-nouveau styles, which were sometimes used in relation with magical themes and symbolism, so it comes together with a set of alchemical and astronomical symbols.

L'Ouroboros ou uroborus est un ancien symbole qui représente un serpent ou un dragon mangeant sa propre queue. Ouroboros est aussi un caractère typographique conçue pour les alchimistes, les sorcières, les hérétiques, les étrangers et les gens curieux en général. Il a été inspiré par les premiers styles de l'art nouveau, qui étaient parfois associés à des motifs et des symbologies magiques, et c'est pour cela qu'il contient un ensemble de symboles alchimiques et astronomiques.

    • The 2019 update of Ouroboros, called Protean, contains several new features. The font now fully supports Vietnamese. It also has a basic Cyrillic set, with additional Ukrainian, Serbian and Macedonian support, and some historical forms (as suggested by Cyrillic users). The alchemical set has been completed and fully reviewed for improved contrast, proportions and kerning. Some other symbols have been added, such as a full zodiac set. Spacing and kerning has been improved, making it subtly more relaxed. More than one hundred ligatures have been set as default (they were previously discretionary ligatures), making Ouroboros more versatile and changing than ever.
