Actually you don't need SuperATM to run multiple-master fonts; it's
required only if you want to do font substitution with some
specially-made mm fonts that come with it. Any Mac ATM released in the
last couple years should do just fine, although newer is always nice.
The current version is 3.6, and something larger is imminent.

It is from Monotype's Type Designers of the World grouping. They released
it in the summer of 1993.
There were three widths available: regular, condensed, and extended. Each
width group made a separate package. Unfortunately, lack of attention to
naming conventions really messes up Type Reunion (all the widths & weights
show up under the same name). These only came with a Fontographer
generated 24 point bitmap.
I like the font, but was disappointed that the fonts weren't up to
standards that I've come to expect from Monotype's products (clean bitmaps
and good hinting).

Graphite Regular ttf came with a old program that I bought a
number of years ago.
I still have the Graphite Light ttf but I can't find the
regular version of the font on any of my old software.
I can purchase the font for somewhere between $22 and $99
but it's not worth it to me as I'm using it for
Any one know where I can get a free copy of this font?
