Made by Donald Knuth in 1985 and presented in TUGboat, Vol. 9, No. 2 in 1988. “The idea of Punk was to start with more-or-less traditional stick-letter shapes, but to ask METAFONT to perturb the key points by random amounts so that the letters look a bit deranged.” — Knuth. Punk is “probably the first typeface with random deviation in its points structure.” — Peter Biľak
Converted from Metafont to MetaPost by Taco Hoekwater & Hans Hagen in 2008. [MAPS 37] Punk Nova is an OpenType implementation made by Khaled Hosny in 2017 (used for sample).
