Free Font Courier Prime

I've written a few screenplays in my time, working on one right now as a matter of fact, I'm also always hunting around for free fonts and found this re-think on the screenplay's standard font Courier new.

It's available for download here 
There's more background on its genesis at . When an agency presents me with a script I'm always disappointed that it never looks like an old school script, I guess things are different for advertising because the client needs to be presented with something they can feel comfortable reading, and standard screenplay format is an acquired taste, however one can still dream. I'll be interested seeing how this font compares with Courier new when applied to a screenplay, mainly because I like the old look and not desperate to change like the designers of this font are. Their argument is that we have moved beyond the typewriter and you can't argue with that.
