IBM 1403 inspired typeface update (Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew)

I’ve been busy. As a break, I added a first pass at uppercase Cyrillic, Greek, and Hebrew to the IBM 1403 inspired typeface. There are fun challenges in fitting these scripts into a fixed width (especially one set initially for the Latin letters). Cyrillic has wide letters; Hebrew has a few narrow letters. After the TYPOSF 2013 conference (my trip report), I incorporated some feedback from other type designers. (Thanks!) I still need to do a detailed review, along with a spacing check, since there’ve been many changes along the way. With that caveat, here’s a sample of the in-progress 1403 Vintage Mono all uppercase typeface. [N.B. The translations have not yet been verified, though the Russian is from a fun dance workshop I attended in Moscow.]

Update: 16 February 2016: The 1403 Vintage Mono Pro typeface has been updated, extensively, now over 2,300 glyphs supporting 160+ languages. Check out the 1403.slantedhall.com web specimen:

    Hi, I wish to buy this font.

      The 1403 Vintage Mono typeface is expected to be available for licensing this summer.

      • Suresh Agarwal says:

        what will be the approx price of font.

      • slantedhall says:

        It’ll be in line with other commercial pro-level fonts and will have support for most languages that use the Latin & Cyrillic alphabets, Greek, and Hebrew. Final price setting is later on the to-do list.

        [Apologies for the delay; I’ve been offline a bit to play piano for a couple friends’ wedding and participation in a historical dance workshop, along with some other things.]

      Over the next few months, we’ll be working with distributors to make it available through them, also.
