How does one make such perfect 8x8 font?

Here is 8x8 pixels Font Notch made his game Minicraft…
My question is, how do you make such a perfect font?? I mean, no matter how I look at it, it just looks freakin awesome… I’m sorry for this, but I will need to copy it for my game :smiley: It just looks too perfect.

I figured it really is small, so here it is a bit more zoomed in and in action.
