Hi to all!
I'm just posting my draft for the font project called MONOARCH.
Will appreciate your opinion.

Cheers!

Hello all,

Can anyone tell me which monospaced fonts work best for printed body text?

Thanks

Sneaky Monospaced!

Hi Guys!

After scrolling through some foundries, search on identifont and myfonts' what the font. I haven't found out which font this one could be.

If someone has some of hints I would appreciate a lot.

Thanks!

Hello,
wondering what this font is called?
Thanks in advance!

I put the pre-alpha (but very usable for low enough resolutions) version of monospaced scalable variant of Unifont font to http://ilyaz.org/software/fonts.

The monospaced one is used in James May's book 'How to land an A330 Airbus', and the grotesque one is from a 70's NASA technical report. Any pointers will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Anyone have any ideas - I've exhausted the usual channels. Thanks!

Hi.

Anyone recognize this font?

I’ve been working on a family of multiscript monospaced bitmap screen fonts, and I’d appreciate your comments.

Some remarks in advance:

In a monospaced font, every character must take tha same amount of space, which means

"left sidebearing"+"glyph weight"+"right sidebearing" = X

Is there any way to set my value for X, instead of setting those 3 values one by one?

FB Alix
With a vintage Selectric typewriter as his muse, Matthew Butterick set out to make a monospaced font that preserved the liveliness & comfortable readability of a proportional design. 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.

4 Styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic

FB Alix is available as OpenType fonts with oldstyle figures and stylistic alternates.

Can anyone tell me what monospaced font this is?
The typeface is from a old book, first published in 1986.

hello all,

for a font design project i am looking for samples and resources of old armenian typewriter character sets (or scans of documents and texts that were written with said machines) that would help me work on a corresponding design or serve as a head start. i have begun with olivetti 32 as the latin basis, and have completed cyrillic so far.

if anybody could point me to such resources or links, i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks a lot.

font ID

Do you know the name of this monospaced font?
Thank you!

Joshua Lurie-Terrell already wrote about SkyhookMono on MyFonts Blog. So I am in the grateful position that I can let others speak about my typeface and let it shine out of itself:

Nova Mono is a monospaced font designed for programmers. It takes the best of programming specific fonts as well as book fonts and attempts to bring them together. This font is heavily inspired by many of the existing monospaced fonts especially Consolas and Pragmata.

Good day everyone.

I am not looking for a specific typeface but rather a list of professional typefaces that would abide by the criteria listed below.

Essentials

  • Proportional spacing for the latin characters with tabular lining figures. (Thanks for clarifying Renko!)
  • French accented latin charaters (é, à, ê…).
  • At least a plain and a bold weight option.
  • Typographers' Quotes (Single and Double)

Desirable attributes but no deal breakers

  • A thin weight option
  • An italic style
  • A condensed style
  • Fractions
  • Stylistic ligatures

Bonuses

Trixie is a distressed monospaced serif typeface created by Dutch type designer, Erik Van Blokland, in 1991 using the inspiration of an old, worn typewriter. Probably the most famous presentation of a single letter is the Trixie capital X used in the title of the popular science fiction television series, "The X-Files".

Since its release in 1991, from “The X-Files” to more recent appearances in "Capote" and "Atonement", FF Trixie has served as the defacto typeface of mystery and intrigue. Although there have been a number of typewriter-like designs, FF Trixie remains the most convincing, and accurate, typewriter font available.
