Linefeed is a monospaced font style motivated by computer band printers of the 1960s and 1970s. A row of hammers, one for each column struck the paper, pushing it into the ribbon and against the character image on a continuously revolving steel band. Extraneous characters would have slowed down a band printer so most were restricted to capitals, numerals and a little punctuation. This was among the most common computer system typefaces of the 1960s and 1970s. It might be seen on motorist's licences, publication subscription labels, report cards, billings and vehicle dealer window sticker labels. This as soon as ubiquitous typeface now includes lowercase letters, more punctuation and accents.
