Inconsolata Font Family

Uploaded by Brielle McClure (2 styles)

Description

Inconsolata is my first serious original font release. It is a monospace font, designed for printed code listings and the like. There are a great many programmer fonts (http://www.lowing.org/fonts/ (http://www.lowing.org/fonts/)), designed primarily for use on the screen, but in most cases do not have the attention to detail for high resolution rendering.Inconsolata draws from many inspirations and sources. I was particularly struck by the beauty of Luc(as) de Groot's Consolas, which is his monospaced design for Microsoft's Vista release. This font, similar to his earlier TheSansMono (http://www.fontfabrik.com/fofafon4.html (http://www.fontfabrik.com/fofafon4.html)), demonstrated clearly to me that monospaced fonts do not have to suck.First and foremost, Inconsolata is a humanist sans design. I strove for the clarity and clean lines of Adrian Frutiger's Avenir (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avenir_(typeface) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avenir_(typeface))) (the lowercase "a", in particular, pays homage to this wonderful design), but also looked to Morris Fuller Benton's Franklin Gothic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Gothic (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Gothic)) family for guidance on some of my favorite glyphs, such as lowercase "g" and "S", and, most especially, the numerals.Designing a monospace font poses unique challenges. I have carefully studied many other monospaced fonts to see how they solve these problems. Many of the available monospace fonts are adaptations of existing proportionally-spaced fonts, but some, such as Letter Gothic, draw strength from being their own designs. I hope Inconsolata upholds that tradition.Some details will be most apparent in print, such as the subtle curves in lowercase "t", "v", "w", and "y". Inconsolata also borrows "micro-serifs" from some Japanese Gothic fonts, which enhance the appearance of crispness and legibility.Completion of this font is being generously sponsored by the TeX Users Group Development Fund (http://tug.org/tc/devfund/ (http://tug.org/tc/devfund/)).
