Fedra Mono was developed for an annual report that required a fixed-width counterpart to Fedra Sans. All the characters share the same widths, which makes it suitable for tabular setting when the information benefit from the vertical alignment of characters. The typical example would be spreadsheet or computer code. It is a 10-pitch face which means 10 characters equals one inch (2.54 cm) when set at 10 pt. All the characters, regardless of weight, have the same width, which is 60% of the em square. Those are also the proportions of the 1956 version of Courier. However, despite the fixed widths, Fedra Mono remains relatively even in typographic color, and lucid on screen. The various potentially similar characters are clearly distinguishable, notably I, l and 1, and O and 0, as well as brackets, braces and parentheses.◀ Back
