Revision as of 09:52, 17 December 2013

Another one of Susan Kare's contributions to the Macintosh, Cairo was the first ever dingbat font to be released for the platform. It was only released as an 18-point bitmap and was removed in System 7.5.[1]. Cairo is best known for introducing the—now legendary—dogcow. Clark Riley recreated a Postscript Type 1 version of this typeface in 1992, which was converted to TrueType in 1994.[2] Haley Fiege independently created a TrueType version that is faithful to the pixelated nature of the original bitmap font.[3]
