punknova – OpenType version of Knuth's Punk font

The font was generated from a version of the sources of the ‘original’ punk font.

Knuth’s original fonts generated different shapes at random. This isn't actually possible in an OpenType font; rather, the font contains several variants of each glyph, and uses the OpenType randomize function to select a variant for each invocation.
