A symbol, a sign, a single glyph — an atomic burst of meaning. From letters and numbers, to punctuation marks, to mathematical symbols. Droplets that form the rivers and oceans of language and culture.

Characters you may meet often, and characters you may have never seen before; some to be found in hundreds of typefaces, others in just a few. There are over 137,000 distinct characters encoded in the Unicode Standard, and the shirts here — in your proprietor’s humble opinion — represent some of the standouts.

Diacritical Mass apparel features characters with compelling forms, marvelous names, or notable function — often all at once. Wear them proudly.
