Web typography

It was a long weekend in October when this all began, 2002. A long, long weekend of discovering how to turn beautiful typefaces of the print world into usable web fonts. We did it, and this is an example of what we developed.

These files pull in CSS style sheets that have each font listed individually, to reduce loading times.

Technical points

The font sizes in the examples are specified in pixels, which gives us the smallest possible increment between one size and the next. When these pages are printed, the sizes are output in points, giving you accurate print sizes. The fonts take on a fantastic smoothing effect at larger sizes, very close to what ATM gives you which is superb for reducing image use and reducing development time.
