IE9 and the Lost World’s Fairs

Last week, we released support for Typekit fonts on IE9. Today, IE9 beta was launched, and with it some absolutely stunning examples of what IE9 can do from Jason Santa Maria and friends. Presenting the Lost World’s Fairs:

El Dorado, from Lost World's Fairs Atlantis, from Lost World's Fairs The Moon, from Lost World's Fairs

Each of the Lost World’s Fairs features fonts from Typekit, including a few new fonts from Process Type Foundry. Fonts from Process Type Foundry will soon be available as web licenses served via Typekit.

With IE9’s new support for the WOFF font format, as well as its dramatically improved screen rendering, the fonts on Lost World’s Fairs look fantastic. We’re working closely with the IE9 team to ensure excellent support for Typekit, and we are very excited about what the future will bring.

    Looks extremely good in IE9, I must say.
    Too bad Typekit fonts on MY website don’t work in IE9. And strangely enough, the Lost World’s Fairs don’t look good at all in the latest version of Firefox or Safari 5.0.2.

    Weird.

      Did you republish your kit? You’ll only get the latest IE9 release if you republish. Drop a line to support@typekit.com if you need anything.

    Stunningly well designed. I Love it, particularly the Moon. Which leads to my question, is there a chance Klavika & Klavika Condesed will join your Library?

    1. Mandy Brown says:

      Klavika will soon be available via a web license served through Typekit (similar to the arrangement we have with FontFont now).

    Mandy, soon as in > 2 months?

    I’d use it in a big upcoming project then :)

    (Whoops, meant < 2 months, of course)

    1. Mandy Brown says:

      Less than two months, yes. More soon!

    Same for me. If it’s possible to get Klavika via Typekit, I’ll get a Account, for sure.

    1. Great! I can’t wait for Klavika to come to Typekit. I’ve been waiting for this or a woff licence from FontShop for a while now to implement Klavika in some websites! Great news!
