Agfa Monotype Corp. has released the Cool Fonts and T.26 font collections on
Fonts.com, an online site for previewing, purchasing, and downloading fonts. The collections add nearly 1,800 font products to the site.
The Cool Fonts collection contains 27 fonts, six typeface families, and a font package called “Grunge Pack,” which features such “grungy” typefaces as Overexposed (with letterforms that suggest the look of overexposed film), and Goombah (a retro design inspired by 1960s space cartoons). Cool Fonts are available in PostScript and TrueType formats for the Mac and Windows. Individual fonts can be purchased for US$24.
The T.26 assortment totals 1,754 fonts, including family volumes, with styles ranging from progressive and alternative display designs to more subtle and traditional text faces, according to Allan Haley, director of words and letters at Agfa Monotype.
Among the T.26 typefaces are Uncle Stinky (found on much of Taco Bell’s packaging), and Mata (a modern squared sans serif display face). Fonts are available for Mac and Windows platforms in PostScript and TrueType (Windows only) formats. Prices for individual T.26 fonts begin at $22.
