A completely new version of Beautiful Web Type will launch this fall.
It will take the initial idea much further, with significantly more detail on each typeface. It will also include typefaces from outside the Google fonts collection.
Get notified when it launches: https://tinyletter.com/beautifulwebtype
Beautiful web type
There are over 600 typefaces in the Google web fonts directory. Many of them are awful. But there are also high-quality typefaces that deserve a closer look. Here are examples of these typefaces in action.
Please note: the above URL is the only correct URL for this project. There are copies being hosted on other domains that I do not control.
- Abril Fatface
- Fira Mono
- Gentium Book Basic
- Gravitas One
- Old Standard TT
