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