punk – Don­ald Knuth's punk font

A re­sponse to the as­ser­tion in a lec­ture that “ty­pog­ra­phy tends to lag be­hind other stylis­tic changes by about 10 years”. Knuth felt it was (in 1988) time to de­sign a re­place­ment for his de­signs of the 1970s, and came up with this font! The fonts are dis­tributed as source.

The pack­age of­fers sup­port by Ro­hit Grover, from an orig­i­nal by Se­bas­tian Rahtz, which is slightly odd in claim­ing that the fonts are T1-en­coded. A (pos­si­bly) more ra­tio­nal sup­port pack­age is to be found in punk-la­tex
