Terrific font, DmaienG.
I thoroughly enjoyed your blog posting last month: "Typography in 8 bits: System fonts"
(It was hevaily promoted here on FontStruct!)

If you liked the 8-bit one check out the 16-bit sequel that I did created font for (I coudn't find a TTF of the Atari's low-res font anywhere!)
I just saw that, DamienG. Sorry about the mispelling of your name in my previous comment: fast fingers + no proof-reading + no way to edit a comment unless you are the font's creator. :^(
Again, your blog posting was very informative!
In fact, I've been working on a TRS-80/CoCo font (from an emulator), as well as the IBM PC VGA font, which was used for 1989's Microsoft Word version 5.0A.
Nice work, I'd only got around to 32 characters of this in a FontStruct I'd forgotten I started. Thanks for taking the trouble!
@DamienG: This site has three TrueType fonts of the Atari eight-bit system font. You're looking for Atari Classic Chunky:
A beautifully executed modular blackletter with extraordinary filigree around the caps. Usable despite the small character set.
