Beautiful Web Type

In October 2018 I released a completely re-thought and re-designed version of this project. The new version aims to provide a complete look at each typeface, cataloging all the available weights and styles, the full glyph set, the kerning quality, OpenType features, recommended pairings and more. I will highlight only typefaces that show a high level of quality.
