Font foundry Bitstream has launched a new Web site that includes facilities for users to categorize and search for fonts. Fonts could previously be bought from the Bitstream site, but users needed to know what font they wanted to purchase before entering the site.
MyFonts.com uses a search engine with all of the fonts divided into specific categories. Visitors can test drive fonts before purchase by examining character maps – and can review or re-download previously purchased fonts.
The site includes all of the fonts in Bitstream’s Typeface Library. Typographer sets are available – comprising of ligratures, swashes, fractions, small caps, old style and alternate characters. The sets available are Bitstream Cataneo, Bitstream Charter, Bitstream Chianti and Bitstream Iowan Old Style.
All fonts are available as both TrueType and PostScript fonts for both Windows and Mac – all for a single price.
