Hello, you beautiful fixed-width font

Pitch. Not quite a programmer’s font, but holy cow is it gorgeous.

I love the thought put into this type; the creator actually tried to recreate the artifacts of type created by physically striking paper. Turned out that took away from the font, but it’s delightful that he went that deep in considering what a fixed-width font should feel like.

The history of fixed-width, typewriter-esque fonts is fantastic too. Even if you’re not typography-curious like myself, you should read the whole thing and not just look at the fantastic specimens.
