If you’re typographically inclined you might like to know that Emigre – one of the world’s earliest, pioneering digital foundries – is offering a selection of its extensive library via Fontstand.
As they put it:
Fontstand is a Mac OS X application that allows you to try fonts for free or rent them by the month for desktop use for just a fraction of the regular price. Even better, if you rent the font for 12 months it’s yours to keep.
Emigre are embarking on this new venture by making a selection of their library available through the service. On offer are a number of favourites, including: Mr and Mrs Eaves, Filosofia, Matrix, Fairplex and a selection of their – lovely – Base series.
