Many would argue that this is where it all began...Lyle Rains' iconic pixel font for Atari/Kee Games' "Sprint 2" (1976), used again for "Sprint 4" (1977), "Sprint 1" (1978) and a plethora of other arcade machines and consoles from that point on - this is the archetypal "arcade machine / 8bit game" font. Only the characters present in the game's tile set have been included.

@redux - Truly the spring from whence most other video arcade game fonts hath flowed.

@redux - And according to Atari's Owen Rubin (whom I emailed in 2011), he believes Lyle Rains designed this iconic masterpiece.

Do you follow Retro Gamer magazine? There is a good source of bitmap works from the 16 bit era in it.
