Courier is a monospaced slab serif typeface. The typeface was designed by Howard “Bud” Kettler (1919–1999). Initially created for IBM’s typewriters, it has been adapted to use as a computer font and versions of it are installed on most desktop computers. BM did not trademark the name Courier, so the typeface design concept and its name are now public-domain.
According to some sources, a later version for IBM’s Selectric typewriters was developed with input from Adrian Frutiger, although Paul Shaw writes that this is a confusion with Frutiger’s adaptation of his Univers typeface for the Selectric system. Sources differ on whether the design was published in 1955 or 1956.
