New releases from FontFont to host on Typekit

We’re delighted to announce that fifty-five (that’s right, 55!) more Web FontFonts are now available to host on Typekit — more than a thousand weights and styles. New-to-web families include FF Bau, FF Clan, FF Good, FF Hands, FF Basic Gothic, and more. Check out the full list of available Web FontFonts, and augment your Typekit library subscription at any time.

Web FontFonts you license can be hosted on Typekit with any of our plans (including our free plan). If you’re already a Typekit user, that means no extra cost to you. It’s easy, and all of your fonts stay organized on Typekit in a special “My Library” tab. Here’s how it works.

Above: FF Basic Gothic Web Pro Regular (left) and heavier weights (right).

One new family – FF Basic Gothic, with its thirty-two weights and styles – is also available in Typekit’s subscription library: see FF Basic Gothic Web Pro and FF Basic Gothic SC Web Pro. FontShop describes FF Basic Gothic as a very good alternative to Verdana (with a pinch of Gill Sans and Antique Olive) and suitable for on screen body text, thanks to the hinting experts in the FontFont Type Department.

Aside from all of these new offerings, FontFont has updated the rendering and vertical metrics of many existing Web FontFonts. To receive the latest version of any typeface on Typekit, just republish your kit. We hope you enjoy this latest batch of great Web FontFonts. Let us know which ones you like!

    Any word of FF Info will (ever) be published as a webfont?

    Oh wow, Ivo – that will be great. Our entire new ID is based around FF Info.

    Small teaser/plug.:

    I’ll be following updates even more closely now.

  4. Awesome news guys! But where can I find a web specimen of FF Bau (web)? It doesn’t show up in the ‘browse fonts’ section (, nor by searching for it… Thanks in advance.

  5. Ivo says:

    FF Bau Web is available on Typekit through the FontShop/FontFont-Typekit partnership only. Therefore you won’t find a web specimen for FF Bau Web on Typekit. You can find some specimen images here or here for instance.

  6. Thanks for the reply, even though it leaves me a bit confused still… As I understand it, all FF fonts are hosted via Typekit, but not all are found on — some, including FF Bau Web, can only be used via And that means there is no web specimen for FF Bau Web to find. Is there another website you know of that uses the font, so I can see it in action as webfont (not image)? That would help a lot, thanks!
