This font suitcase contains what I believe to be the entire Espy font family (Espy Sans and Espy Sans Bold size 9, 10, 12, 14, & 16, and Espy Serif and Espy Serif Bold sizes 10, 12, 14, & 16). Espy Sans was originally used as the Newton system font and for eWorld, and later was the iPod mini system font; Espy Sans and Serif were also used in the Apple Guide extension from System 7.5 to OS 9.

I hadn't previously been able to find a file with all these styles and sizes. I used ResEdit to copy the FOND and NFNT resources from the Apple Guide extension into another suitcase that had an incomplete set of the fonts. I got the original file from here, via a LowEndMac article: https://web.archive.org/web/20070331054839/http://users.crocker.com:80/~...

More information about the Espy font family, from the late creator Damon Clark's website:
