I really like the upright italic face available on #Smalltalk-76 and the #Xerox #Alto seen here mostly in the class browser. It looks like it’s called Cream, but I can’t find much about it on the Web.

Alan Kay on the Squeak-dev mailing list:
‘Cream was designed because I liked the documentation of JOSS at RAND very much and this showed the JOSS code in a “slight script” that was very pleasing to look at on paper. Cream was Flegal’s solution to this desire using only 1-bit graphics, and it was pretty good.’
Early in development, the Macintosh also used Cream:
‘The initial system font that we used through most of 1981 was one that we borrowed from Smalltalk called “Cream”.’
Helge Horch had a version of the font that could be loaded into Squeak. No idea whether it loads in Pharo.
Fantasque Sans Mono is a typeface, with a modern font, which has some of the same whimsy (although only available mono-spaced).
