Donald Knuth's punk font.

A response to the assertion in a lecture that “typography tends to lag behind other stylistic changes by about 10 years”. Knuth felt it was (in 1988) time to design a replacement for his designs of the 1970s, and came up with this font! The fonts are distributed as Metafont source.

The package offers LaTeX support by Rohit Grover, from an original by Sebastian Rahtz, which is slightly odd in claiming that the fonts are T1-encoded. A (possibly) more rational support package is to be found in punk-latex

The authors are Donald E. Knuth and Rohit Grover.
