FONTLOG for the Inconsolata fonts This file provides detailed information on the Inconsolata Font Software. This information should be distributed along with the Inconsolata Bold fonts and any derivative works. Basic Font Information Raph Levien, the primary designer of the family, wrote: 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," 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, 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 (the lowercase "a", in particular, pays homage to this wonderful design), but also looked to Morris Fuller Benton's 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. In December 2011, a Bold style was commissioned from Kirill Tkachev of the Cyreal foundry. Inconsolata is a Unicode typeface family that supports languages that use the Latin script and its variants, and could be expanded to support other scripts. More specifically, this release supports the following Unicode ranges: Latin-1 For the Bold style there are two .vfb Source files: 1. Inconsolata Bold-OTF.vfb - Merged contours, corresponding to Inconsolata-Bold.otf 2. Inconsolata Bold-TTF.vfb - TTF countours, corresponding to Inconsolata-Bold.ttf ChangeLog 7 December 2011 (Kirill Tkachev) Inconsolata Bold v. 1.000 - Initial release of Bold style of Inconsolata ?
