Old Typewriter

This font is baised on the typewritter my father still uses to type
letters on. It's a huge HEAVY black monster that doesn't even have
the number 1 because they figure you can just use
an l.

I though it had an interesting style, so I had my dad type in every
character and worked off of that. Some of the characters in the font
are characters that weren't on the keyboard, so I just made them
up. The characters I created are: ! 1 = + ~ \ © ™ ® °
The rest of the characters were on the typewritter.

I have 3 versions of this font:
Messy. This version is the most complex. Low memory apps
*may* have trouble with it. It probally won't look much different
than Simplified unless it's printed at 24pt or larger text. Especially if
your final out put is screen resolution you probally don't need to use
this version often
Simplified. This is just a scaled down version of Messy. It is
quicker and looks fine
for anything on screen, or small printouts. It is also useful if you
want your final output to look "cleaner" around the edges, and have
less gaps in the letters
Skimpy. This works well when interdispersed with the others, or
when it's supposed to look like the ribbon is almost out on the
typewriter. I personally think this version is the most fun, although
it's not as legable as the others.
