Quatre Quarts is an all caps display font, with condensed monospace characters that were created following a simple rule : their width is 1/4 of their height, and the thickness of the lines is 1/4 of the width.
It has a kinda retro look because I was inspired by some Art Déco typefaces. "Quatre quarts" is also a traditional French cake, named after the proportions of its ingredients : 1/4 of flour, 1/4 of butter, 1/4 of milk and 1/4 of sugar. So I thought it could be a good name for this typeface.
It is released under the Open Font License, so it's 100% free (including commercial use !). The FontForge source file is included so don't hesitate to improve the font (add characters & ligatures, improve the kerning...) if you feel like.
I'm thinking about creating a light version (4x thinner than the regular), so if you like this project and want to have the light version, say it in the comments !
