More great fonts as ParaType joins Typekit
As if it wasn’t already evident from yesterday’s post announcing Futura, we are thrilled that ParaType has joined Typekit. Sixteen typefaces have been added to the Typekit library in all, including Futura PT. And ParaType has done a superb job in preparing all of these fonts for web use; you can trust that these fonts will look great, even in the most unforgiving environments.
A ParaType bestseller, Pragmatica Web was inspired by Helvetica (Neue Haas Grotesk) and has been carefully prepared for screen rendering. Includes five weights with italics, plus three condensed weights with italics.
A neutral, legible grotesque, Textbook New Web is based on versions of Textbook originally designed for other media (photo, metal) and developed for use in grade school textbooks; includes four weights, plus italics.
Adonis Web is an all-purpose serif with a noble yet affable feel. From the ParaType website: “Adonis is a typeface of classical appearance with slightly oblong proportions, small rounded serifs, and soft letterforms. The face is both space-saving and quite legible in small sizes. The family consists of four standard font styles and proposed for text and display typography.” Adonis includes two weights, plus italics.
PT Sans and PT Serif were released with an open-user license for the benefit of Russian reading and writing, and make excellent screen fonts. They were designed with elements of both modernism and humanism, and meant to be used together. Both fonts come in a stout caption style (sans, serif) for small sizes, and PT Sans also comes in a narrow width.
In addition, try Baker Signet Web, Baltica Web (and Extra Condensed), DIN Condensed Web, Elina Web (and Decor), Federico Web, Kremlin Pro Web (plus Semi Expanded and Expanded), Magistral Web (plus Condensed and Compressed), Petersburg Web, Private Sans Web, Schoolbook Web (and Condensed), and for headlines, Zubilo Web (in four styles: Black, Inline, Lined, and Shadow).
