Courier New Font is a slab-serif typeface that was designed for the IBM Selectric series as the typewriter face. It can be used with Falco font.
IBM font is mostly used in tabular work, reports, and official documentation work. Courier New is a monospaced font family designed for use in technical, editorial, and book-publishing applications. It has been described as “a bastard child of Courier and Courier New.”
The typeface was designed by Matthew Carter and released to the public domain in 1993. It is based on the Monotype Grotesque typeface but modified by adding a more modern flavor.
Courier New Bold was released in 1995, followed by Courier New Bold Italic in 1996. In 1997, it was expanded to include additional weights, including light and bold. A condensed version of the font was added later.
In 2004, Adobe Systems acquired Bitstream Inc., which had released versions of the typeface under license from Matthew Carter. In 2007, Adobe released a version of the font that included only italic glyphs (no bold or bold italic).
