FABULOUS FONT FOCUS on FRIDAY

I've been obsessed with fonts lately.  I just can't get enough.  I've mentioned this before, but it is amazing how much typography and the fonts used within the design impact the overall look.  Beautiful fonts make me happy,  inexpensive beautiful fonts make me drool.  

If you've pursued the interwebs a bit you may have run across other Font Fridays from folks much more committed than I.  They say that plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, so I'm launching my (likely one time only) Font Friday!  Woo Hoo! 

My list is focused on one of my favorite spots for font goodness, The Lost Type Co-Op.   If you've interested in great fonts and you've never heard of them you must check them out! 

Here are a few of my faves... Enjoy!

I've posted it before but you can't reference Lost Type without mentioning it.  This font has become a favorite script for many designers out there.  One of my favorites for sure!  So many opentype options!  just gorgeous!

Brief background:  The Lost Type Co-Op is a Pay-What-You-Want Type foundry, the first of its kind.  Founded by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, originally in a whirlwind 24 hour adventure to distribute a single typeface, Lost Type has blossomed into a full fledged foundry, distributing fonts from designers all over the world, with its unique model. Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in '$0' for a free download. 100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively. Lost Type takes no cut of sales, and holds no funds. 

Happy weekend!
