Classic Home Computer Fonts

Anyone who owned a home computer in the 80's would have been intimately familiar with the character set. Although it was possible to redefine the font, it had to be loaded from cassette and was restricted to an 8×8 pixel grid. Love it or hate it, you were stuck with it.

Fortunately for anyone who misses their 8-bit computer a selection of classic fonts are available online. Here are a few of my favourites:

Amstrad CPC Font Amstrad CPC font

Atari Font Atari font

Commodore 64 font Commodore font

ZX Spectrum font ZX Spectrum font

Which home computers did you own and what did you love / hate about the font? :-)
