About this font family
Linefeed is a monospaced font inspired by computer band printers of the 1960s and 1970s. A row of hammers, one for each column hit the paper, pushing it into the ribbon and against the character image on a continuously revolving steel band. Extraneous characters would have slowed down a band printer so most were limited to capitals, numerals and a little punctuation. This was one of the most common computer fonts of the 1960s and 1970s. It could be seen on driver’s licences, magazine subscription labels, report cards, invoices and car dealership window stickers. This once ubiquitous typeface now includes lowercase letters, more punctuation and accents.
