Wednesday inspiration: font & typography | No.7-Crimson Text typeface posted on White Box Design Studio

Crimson Text is a beautiful oldstyle typefaces designed by Sebastian Kosch.

There are a lot of great free fonts around, but one kind is missing: those Garamond-inspired types with all the little niceties like oldstyle figures, small caps, fleurons, math characters and the like. In fact, a lot of time is spend developing free knock-offs of ugly "standards" like Times and Helvetica. ( Reference: Google Fonts )

Crimson Text is available regular, semi-regular, bold weights. Italic versions were also made available for each weight.
