I'm seeking a font graphic (images, not TTF format or something that needs to be useable by a computer) that fits in 9 by 9 pixels.

Can anyone recommend a free source, or a simple technique for making one? I think that this ought to be do-able by a single line with GraphicsMagick or ImageMagick, but have not been able to figure it out yet.

If you search the internet for these two fonts, you should find some interesting things:

  • DOS font
  • Commodore 64 font
  • C64 font

Whoops, sorry, I read "not TTF" as "not TIFF." What you might need to search for is "bitmap fonts." But, the good news is that ImageMagick can use TTF (TrueType fonts). – Randolf Richardson Apr 22 '11 at 4:34
