The effect of the anonymous letter
I have a bit of a programming question, and I think it's in line with what LaTeX (XeLaTeX in my case) is suited to do.
I would like to randomly use a font (from a list of fonts) for each glyph being typeset. I wanted to do this for a project in the style of a "ransom letter" - imagine individual characters being clipped from a different source.
I wanted to use a set of fonts that were modelled after typewriters, all opentype fonts. How would I approach this?
Ideally I would type the text normally, and have TeX do the heavy-lifting of randomly picking a character-set for each glyph.
