Triplicate is used for code samples and other monospaced typesetting in this book (e.g., one space between sentences). It’s also one of the fonts available for body text in this book. (Click on the font-selection toolbar at the bottom of the page to try it.)
True, my official advice is that in general you should avoid monospaced fonts. But in some cases, a monospaced font is the right tool for the job. So why not have a nice one?
Triplicate has true italics, real small caps, oldstyle figures, swash caps, box-drawing characters, and other superfluities.
Triplicate includes a Code variant with characters optimized for programming and terminal windows (also seen in Why Racket? Why Lisp?).
Of interest to screenwriters: Triplicate also includes a Short variant that occupies the same horizontal and vertical space as Mac OS Courier system font, so it’s easy to switch without altering your document templates.
Triplicate has a short, plain-English font license that includes permission to use it in PDFs, websites, apps, and electronic books. It is a one-time payment, not a subscription.
- Each license covers multiple people, but only within a single organization or family. A license cannot be split among friends or random strangers. Details here.
- Triplicate has no demo version, but I offer a 30-day return option: if the fonts aren’t your style, you can cancel your license for a refund.
No, there are no programming ligatures in Triplicate, and there never will be.
