Background

In System 7.5, Apple introduced its last bitmapped fonts – Espy Sans ( along with Espy Serif). These fonts were designed to look good on screens. Apple made these fonts for its Newton PDA and used them for its fated online service called eWorld. Around that time there were screen shots of the next generation Mac Operating System; it used Espy Sans Bold for it’s system font instead of Chicago.
This font wasn’t installed in the Fonts folder inside the System Folder. Instead, it was inside the Apple Guide and could only be released for general use by using a program like ResEdit.
