iA Writer’s new font

The post In Search of the Perfect Writing Font from the folks behind iAWriter popped up in my RSS reader the other ago and sadly turned into a case of TL’DR. Then, I didn’t had enough time or energy to finish reading it. In hindsight this was stupid, since it wasn’t until I read the linkpost on MacStories that I learned that iA Writer’s new font is available on GitHub!

I’m glad I didn’t miss this, since this is fantastic news!

Despite really liking Nitti (maybe even a little too much), I never could justify purchasing it. This new font looks and feels great and I installed it already in Ulysses.

As a bonus, the font it is based on, IBM’s new font, IBM Plex, is available on GitHub as well which is probably worth having a look at as well.

Thanks to the fine folks a iA for sharing.

  1. Yes, the iA Writer team really buried the lede in that post. I actually feel a bit sorry for them, because like you, I also installed their font in Ulysses. I wonder how many others have done the same?

    1. I get the sentimient and probably quite a few people installed it in Ulysses. But then again, it is probably safe to assume that the target audience probably owns both apps anyway. At least I do.
