Fetch Fine Free Fixed-Width Font

Fellow font whores: does Courier make you wince? Think Monaco fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch?

Notable type designer Mark Simonson has made available a free fixed-width font called Anonymous which is both attractive and legible, and is available for Windows and Mac.

For those that don’t follow: a fixed-width font, also called mono-spaced, is one in which each letter takes up an equal amount of horizontal space. Like on a typewriter or in the amber-on-black days of DOS command lines (you remember DOS, don’t you?).


You’re such a font slut! (But I love it.)
