What is the Baksheesh font?
The Baksheesh family comes in three weights with accompanying italics and small caps.
The catalyst for the development of the typeface came from the desire to create a contemporary family of constructed letterforms built upon a flexible system. The aesthetic of the font is influenced by the characters drawn by Wim Crouwel in 1976 for Olivetti’s typewriter font that could support varying character widths, hence Baksheesh’s faux-monospace appearance.

Each of the characters has been designed according to an intricate grid, helping to rationalise the letterforms into a system that can be translated across the various styles. The flexibility of the grid also allows for optical adjustments to be made, for example stroke thinning at junctions and baseline/x-height overshoot for enhanced definition throughout.
Baksheesh is suitable for setting small amounts of text as a distinguishable and legible headline font.

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that Baksheesh is not a free font.
You won't be able to find Baksheesh as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Baksheesh HERE. You can find some other great options here on Jorgensen-fonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Baksheesh are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
