    I'll never buy a Hoefler font, but this is beautiful.

        I'm guessing because of the Frere-Jones stuff, but could be wrong.

          Thats my guess too, curious if there would be a different reason though.

            Yup, boycotting over the FJ stuff. I prefer to source conflict-free typefaces.

              I get where you're coming from but its impossible to know what really happened. This seems like an extreme reason to not do business with them but to each their own.

      Same here. We used H&J quite a lot but I briefed our designers to stop using H&J. I spent a couple of hours reading the drama and it makes me sick to the stomach.

        So, I read that they came to an agreement recently. Does that mean you would use their fonts again? Just out of curiosity are there any other services you don't use because of things that people did?

    Gorgeous. This’d go brilliantly with Mercury or Leitura News.

    Reminds me a little of a higher-contrast Times Modern, which, sadly, you can’t license independently.
