Created by Donald E. Knuth with the METAFONT font-creation system as a companion to his TeX typesetting system. The letters are parameterized by a total of sixty-two parameters, most of which are independent of each other. (It is, in this sense, more highly-parameterized than any existing Multiple Master font.) Every style—serif and sans serif, monospace and proportional, italic and upright, bold, extended, condensed, and so on—is generated from the same sources, given different parameters.

Later, the fonts were converted to Type1 and TrueType, then eventually OpenType, formats, to integrate with modern operating systems.

The typefaces were developed over a period of time from 1977 to 1985, with minor adjustments thereafter.

The fonts are freely redistributable and usable for any purpose, personal or commercial.

Donald Knuth

Donald Ervin Knuth (born January 10, 1938) is an American computer scientist, mathematician, and professor emeritus at Stanford University. He is the 1974 recipient of the ACM Turing Award, informally considered the Nobel Prize of computer science.
He is the author of the multi-volume work The Art of Computer Programming. He contributed to the development of the rigorous analysis of the computational complexity of algorithms and systematized formal mathematical techniques for it. In the process he also popularized the asymptotic notation. In addition to fundamental contributions in several branches of theoretical computer science, Knuth is the creator of the TeX computer typesetting system, the related METAFONT font definition language and rendering system, and the Computer Modern family of typefaces.
