Compression Half-the byte for double the text

I drew these fonts back in the day, and I’m not sure I ever published them before, probably because the limitations of 4 pixel wide fonts mean that you don’t get much originality. There are plenty of other fonts out there like this, including the Spectrum Tasword font as well as Screen-80 and Highspeed80

The idea with these fonts is you use a renderer that can draw half-width to double the amount of text you can display on-screen for a Commodore 60, that would be 80 characters, for a Spectrum that would give you 64.

The typeface is available in regular, short, and tall variants. A square version of each is also provided.

The simulated samples here only support 8x8 mono-spaced fonts. They do not show the intended usage of this typeface.

Can be seen in Scroll of the Time Lords.
