Includes “From stoichedon to programming: a concise history of monospaced typefaces”, an essay by historian Alice Savoie: a study of the apparition, uses and facets of monospaced letterforms from the Greek Antiquity to early programming ages. Savoie surveys both the technical and aesthetical aspects of fixed-width design through stoichedon, typewriter typefaces, optical character recognition (OCR) and digital typefaces for programming.
