As of today we’re pleased to announce Typeplate, a free-range and open-source typographic starter kit that will hopefully help you build beautiful, text-rich websites. The word on the street is that the Web Is 95% Typography, so as we hurtle towards the future, we think there’s still a lot we can learn from five centuries of history.
Typeplate is the result of this exploration of our typographic heritage. We made Typeplate because we weren’t satisfied with existing Web frameworks.
