A Whole Mess of Free, Well-Designed Typefaces

I do love me a thought out, well-designed typeface. And while I love learning to recognize and properly use the classic, modern alphabets, I like veering away from the standards with some lesser known options.

Unfortunately, inexpensive, attractive typefaces are hard to come by. The League of Moveable Type offers not only inexpensive, sharp options, but a heap of FREE tasty fonts.

"We're done with the tired old fontstacks of yesteryear. Enough with the limitations of the web, we won't have it. It's time to raise our standards. Here, you'll find only the most well-made, free & open-source, @font-face ready fonts."

Speaking of typefaces, the first person to name the font used by ManMade (the logo, headings, and post titles) will win a free copy of Make It! Mid-Century Modern. Just post it in the comments below, and be sure to add your email in the [confidential] window. Yessir!

Let's do it again! Name the font used as the main text for the post content, such as this paragraph above - "We're done with the tired old fontstacks of yesteryear. Enough with the limitations of the web, we won't have it. It's time to raise our standards. Here, you'll find only the most well-made, free & open-source, @font-face ready fonts"
