With a vintage Selectric typewriter as his muse, [[http://www.fontbureau.com/people/MatthewButterick/|Matthew Butterick]] set out to make a monospaced font that preserved the liveliness & comfortable readability of a proportional design. [[http://www.fontbureau.com/fonts/AlixFB/|FB Alix]] was inspired by IBM’s Prestige, a ’50s stalwart, but features true cursive italics, not sloped variants. An OpenType set of proportional alternates allows for more conventional text fitting while retaining the classic typewriter look; FB 2011
4 Styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic
FB Alix is available as OpenType fonts with oldstyle figures and stylistic alternates.
