from man 1 urxft:
Code:
-fn fontlist
    Select the fonts to be used. This is a comma separated list of font names that are checked in order when trying to find glyphs for characters. The first font defines the cell size for characters; other fonts might be smaller, but not (in general) larger. A (hopefully) reasonable default font list is always appended to it. See resource font for more details.

    In short, to specify an X11 core font, just specify its name or prefix it with "x:". To specify an XFT-font, you need to prefix it with "xft:", e.g.:

    urxvt -fn "xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono:pixelsize=15"
    urxvt -fn "9x15bold,xft:Bitstream Vera Sans Mono"

    See also the question "How does rxvt-unicode choose fonts?" in the FAQ section of urxvt(7).

try some permutations, e.g.:
Code:
URxvt.font:                      xft:Input Mono:style=compressed:size=12
URxvt.font:                      xft:Input Mono Compressed Light:style=extra-condensed:size=12
etc.
