They’re more than just free, they’re open source! That means no right restrictions, ever. Embed em, web-font em, whatever which way, and never worry.
Considering “open source” in general means “ugly as sin, even if it works,” the League should be commended up and down the block, and then around it, too!
I owe them my firstborn for League Gothic alone. Or a kidney, at least.
We have no budget for type right now. The LofMT makes it possible to add a little something new to the closet with the designer’s full blessing. It’s a fabulous project.
The League + FontSquirrel’s @font-face generator (with thanks to Paul Irish) has been a boon to me. The big foundries can try to fight the future for as long as they like; some of us are moving on.
Thanks for reminding me, though – I owe both the League of Moveable Type and FontSquirrel donations. 🙂
Beyond the typefaces, my favorite thing about the League is the people behind it: two remarkable young designers operating under the name “a good company.” They do some impressive stuff that I’d recommend everyone check out weareagoodcompany.com.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
