Lost Type Co-Op: a Pay-What-You-Want Type Foundry

As someone who loves custom fonts (I always try new fonts in my documents, on my websites and in my design projects) I love it when I find a website featuring beautiful fonts. So when I came across losttype.com, I knew I had to share it, for all of you who love typography, enjoy this awesome collection! Founded by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, originally in a whirlwind 24 hour adventure to distribute a single typeface, Lost Type has blossomed into a full fledged foundry, distributing fonts from designers all over the world, with its unique model. Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in ‘$0’ for a free download. 100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively, Lost Type takes no cut of sales, and holds no funds. Permission for @font-face integration is something that varies from font to font, and designer to designer.
