Proving that good design is truly timeless, this week we bring you a remake of the classic 1941 typeface Libre Caslon. The font was given an updated treatment by Rodrigo Fuenzalida and Pablo Impallari, and features two separate display and text versions, both optimized for the web (and each with multiple weights and styles). We love it for typesetting complete web pages, from headline to copy, and maintaining readability even at small point sizes. Download for free from Font Squirrel.
Our second free font this week is Luthier, by Adrià Gómez of Emtype Foundry in Barcelona, Spain. It’s a contemporary design with sharp serifs and includes two weights plus italics. The font’s high-contrast design offers great visibility, making it suitable for both text and headlines. Try it on documents that lean toward a more serious, conservative style, but still need to look fantastic. Download for free at Behance.
We hope you enjoy this week’s free Friday fonts, and be sure to come back next week for more. As always, share the love and thank the font designers for making this possible.
