FF Letter Gothic is a typeface family from Albert Pinggera that is based on the old “Letter Gothic” typewriter faces. As the name “FF Letter Gothic Text” suggests, this version is not monospaced, as is the case with the default “FF Letter Gothic Mono” family.
FF Letter Gothic Text is more typographic than true typewriter faces. While there are just three weights available in the family, each of them includes a true italic companion. As is the case with most FontFonts, the default figure style of the FF Letter Gothic Text fonts are oldstyle figures, although lining figures are available via OpenType features.
Just like the classic “DIN” and “OCR” designs, “Letter Gothic” has experienced a renaissance since being revived and updated by FontFont. Graphic designers are attracted by the non-designed nuances of these classics, because of their bare geometry (DIN), the monospacing (OCR, Letter Gothic), or the charm of the technological “stone-age.”
FF Letter Gothic Text supports 101 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
