Font - Amaurote

Another old 8-bit bitmap font, for Monday.

This was probably the 2nd or 3rd font I designed after starting at Binary Design. I was quite pleased with it, but the boss, Andy Hieke, went mad for it. He was raving about it, and said we should submit it to Letraset to get the design included in their catalogue (this was in the days before True Type fonts, when when Letraset transfer fonts were the format of choice for graphic designers). One of Andy's typically enthusiastic flights-of-fancy which came to nothing (and the font is unreadable and ugly, and not developed enough for use outside of a game), but I was very flattered at the time.

This font is fixed spaced, and a (luxurious at the time) 16x16 pixels per character. No lower case, sorry.
