This is my attempt to make the smallest possible font. Each character fits inside a 3x3 pixel square (4x4 pixels if you include the space between characters). This font can be useful where pixel space is at a premium, like on an LED matrix or a mechanical display.
I don't consider this a truly complete font because there is no distinction between the capital letters and small letters. Also, some of the special characters can be difficult to descern without context. Nevertheless, this font can create readable text strings and convey information using a minimum of resources.
I am publishing this font under a Creative Commons license, so that anyone can use it for any purpose. Attribution is appreciated but not required.
Leave a comment if you make something cool with it!

A clone of the variable-width pixel font PlainAndSimple (itself a clone of Nano OK) that adds small serifs to many letters and some numbers, with the same weight as the rest of the font. Numbers are full-size here (about the size of a capital letter) instead of the narrrow versions in PlainAndSimple, with a slashed zero. Several other things have been updated, usually relating to the wider max width that the serifs require.This is a clone of PlainAndSimple
Derived from Nano OK, an earlier font of mine, but with more height and less weight on the capital letters. Having more height makes some of the punctuation less cramped as well. Extends 8 pixels above the baseline and 2 pixels below it. Variable width, with most capital letters 5 blocks wide, plus 1 more for spacing, and lower-case letters varying somewhat, though they are usually slightly narrower. Numbers are unusually narrow to help tell them apart from letters, and are between the lower-case and upper-case letters in height.This is a clone of Nano OK
This is a font I made for others to use and make editions of it. Planning on adding more characters to this font in the future, covering all latin characters. You don't have to credit me for using this font or ask me permission, but I'd aprecciate it if you do not claim this specific font as your own.This is a clone
