About this font family

ITC American Typewriter was designed by Joel Kaden and Tony Stan. It is an ode to the invention that shaped reading habits and the idea of legibility, the typewriter. A compromise between the rigidity of its ancestor and the expectations of the digital age, ITC American Typewriter retains the typical typewriter alphabet forms, lending the font a hint of nostalgia. 
ITC American Typewriter can be used for business correspondence or in any work that requires an old-fashioned, personal look.

14 Fonts are in this type family.
