Monotype announces typefaces for e-Reading experiences
Monotype Imaging Holdings -- a provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices -- has released a collection of typefaces designed for digital reading environments, including e-books, Web content, mobile applications, digital publications and online newspapers.
Device manufacturers, digital publishers and Web designers can now turn to a selection that includes some of the most popular text faces used in print -- designed and tuned for readability on e-readers, tablets, smartphones and other Web-enabled devices. Monotype’s initial collection includes multiple weights of nine typeface families, designated for digital publishing: Amasis eText, Monotype Baskerville eText, PMN Caecilia eText, ITC Galliard eText, Malabar eText, Neue Helvetica eText, Palatino eText, Sabon eText and Ysobel eText
The new typefaces can be integrated in a number of ways. They may be embedded in consumer devices for use as system fonts that can be custom-tuned for optimal display and performance to meet specific device requirements. The fonts may be bundled within the source code of an e-book or digital publication title, enabling publishers to preserve intended design, branding and layout requirements. Displays that use either e-paper or LCD technology are supported.
The fonts may be licensed as Web fonts from Fonts.com Web Fonts for HTML-based content, enabling high-quality reading experiences across various Web-enabled devices. To view the new collection, visit http://bit.ly/XovVvK .
