Font Sunday, initiated by the Design Museum, is rotating a typographical showcase each week. This week, electronic display fonts have stolen the limelight.
Today's #fontsunday is hosted by @david_reinfurt who developed the Speech-to-Text font for Sir David Adjaye's and Adam Pendleton's proposed Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King Memorial in Boston. The theme will be ELECTRONIC DISPLAY FONTS. Share your examples from noon. pic.twitter.com/PmozeK5EsM

It also highlights a famous spot for New York font-lovers, the digital clock on Water Street designed in 1971 by Rudolph de Harak.
And who could forget the E.T.Â font from the Atari game?
Gotta love that tilt. Aced this game as a kid.#fontsunday @DesignMuseum pic.twitter.com/0fBpig4yEj
