Raleway made by Matt McInerney

Raleway, by Matt McInerney (@mattmc), is another open source font made available from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites for quality fonts. It is available for free download below.

Raleway is an elegant sans-serif typeface, designed in a single thin weight. It is a display face that features both old style and lining numerals, as well as a stylistic alternate inspired by more geometric sans-serif typefaces than it’s neo-grotesque inspired default character set.

Matt is also responsible for another open source font called Orbitron

Prociono made by Barry Schwartz

Prociono is another open source font from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites for quality fonts. It is available for free download below.

“Prociono” (pro-tsee-O-no) is an Esperanto word meaning either the star Procyon or the animal species known as the raccoon. It is a roman with blackletter elements.

This font pre-dates the League and was placed by me into the public domain, so actually the restrictions of the OFL do not apply to it.

Goudy Blackletter Font

Goudy Bookletter by Barry Schwartz

Goudy Bookletter 1922 is another open source font from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites. It is available for download below. This font is based on Frederic Goudy’s Kennerley Oldstyle.

A few words from the designer : Why I think Kennerley Oldstyle is beautiful: In making this font, I discovered that Kennerley fits together tightly and evenly with almost no kerning. Thus the following words from Monotype specimen books are just: “[W]hen composed into words the characters appear to lock into one another with a closeness common in early types, but not so often seen in later-day creations.” These are letters that take command of the space around them; notice, for instance, the bowed shapes of the v and w.
