Lost Type Foundry

The Lost Type Co-Op is a Pay-What-You-Want [t]ype foundry, the first of it’s kind. 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.

Free font sources always leave me wanting. They tend not to include multiple weights or styles, fail to contain special characters and have horrible kerning data. That said, I wish them all the best. “Highlands” and “Liberator” both look fantastic (though the former suffers from a lack of lowercase characters, numbers and punctuation).
