Boxy was designed by David Bergsland and published by Hackberry Font Foundry. Boxy contains 4 styles and family package options.  

In my on-going quest for display fonts to be used with my books and on my book covers, I decided I need a squared sans serif. I started the build off of Fiscal, a font I designed back in 2006. I never liked the font, plus my tastes have changed. So, I opened it, made it narrower, increased the x-height, and various stuff like that. I made it much heavier-an ended up with Boxy.

Then my brain slapped me and said, 'Why don't you make a sorta modern version?' So, I did and decided to call that style Chic. But then I wanted a thin version also. Fiscal was always too heavy and ponderous for me. So, I made the Thin style. Finally, I felt I needed an italic of Chic.

OpenType features didn't seem to work well with the family, so all I added was oldstyle figures. So, I ended up with another of my unique families-with two unmodulated fonts: Thin and Medium, and two modulated fonts: Chic and Chic Italic. But, I'm pleased with it. My hope is that you will like it also.
