    Notable free super-families

    Just an oversight. But you should be able to add it yourself if you think it needs to be listed. A number of families in this list are already listed in either one or both “best of” lists of serif or sans serif free typeface families.

    What I meant instead of it being listed once under super family it got two separate mentions.

    Notable free super-families

    I guess not strange since Alegreya has both. But it is a super superfamily, as good as any paid one. Background: I redesigned our website when our new cost-cutting CEO decided to move our design department from Adobe to free alternatives. So I had to move our website from Mrs/ Mr Eaves. Keeping with the cost-cutting approach, I tried many fonts, settling on Alegreya. At first, I thought I'd be giving up a lot, but I was shocked when I realized I PREFERRED to free font to the well-regarded paid one. As an FYI, I also tried Source, PT and Merriweather and found them okay, but less versatile. I more or less agree with the writer's grades.

    Strangely Alegreya is entered under sans and serif.

    Notable free super-families

    Hey, what about Alegreya? To me, it's the best free superfamily of all -- there's serif and sans serif, with proper bold, italic and small caps for both. The letterforms are beautiful, especially the serif at large sizes. I've been using them to design a series of posters at work & I've transitioned to using it on our website, catalog and to save on page-view charges. And yet, I've NEVER felt like I'd compromised. And our CEO loves me for it too.... 🙂

    Modern reverse-contrast Fonts

    Instead of the vertical lines being the same width or thicker than horizontals, a reverse-contrast font has the horizontal lines which are thicker than verticals. This list collects modern designs with this feature, but excluding the highly decorative reverse-contrast designs of the 19th century.
