San Francisco sample text

San Francisco was one of the original bitmap typefaces for the Apple Macintosh computer. It was designed by Susan Kare to mimic the ransom note effect. An official TrueType version was never made, and San Francisco was rendered obsolete with the arrival of System 7.

Saint Francis, by Hank Gillette,[1][2] is a free TrueType font of similar design sometimes used as a surrogate on non-Apple systems.
