This clone of Monkey (my monospace lanky font) still has one width (6 blocks), but isn't so lanky. It is 12 blocks tall; all letters are at most 8 above the baseline and at most 3 below, but the Unicode box drawing characters are one block taller. Since all the ascenders got a little lower, I'm calling this one Low Rider. The fact that the width of every glyph is half of its height could be handy for grid displays in certain text-based applications. Text-mode programs can also take advantage of the box drawing characters. This font uses the FontStruct 2x2 filter method with plenty of composite and stacked bricks, which lets the curves look good at large sizes while remaining sharp on the screen at normal sizes.
