Westminster font family

In the mid-1960s after banks began printing machine-readable account numbers on checks, a British font designer made an entire typeface along the same lines. No one took this typeface seriously, however, until Photoscript produced it, naming the typeface after the bank that helped Photoscript fund the font's production. Westminster was an instant hit, and the very font makers who had previously rejected the idea rushed out to commission alternative designs. This is the first of those designs, and it's the best. Although you're welcome to use only the numbers (perhaps you run a bank), the rest of the face can provide a number of interesting uses at both large and small sizes.
