Monolined Typefaces

I just thought we could discuss a bit about monolined since it’s still a contemporary type trend. We know some people love it and others just think it’s too easy. This thread is open to all opinions.

What about if we also try to create a list of the best types in this movement?

Is Lineto a reference with their Gravur Condensed and simple? And about MM Paris?

Drop us your opinion here.

thank you

An interesting “r” but I had to reference it in the words to make out what it was.

“m” looks poor at small sizes (look in top-right corner in the WARNING area, the words “minors” and “” have weird looking “m”s. Although for some reason I have no problem with the “m” in “may”.)

I really like the font though, especially how well different bolds work together.

Huh. has some interesting offerings. Just wish I could force CSS to render these fonts into a website. Yeah, I know Flash will do it, but…

Just thinking out loud…

You can deliver fonts to the bulk of web users by embedding them using MS’s WEFT/EOT technology. You’ll need to sniff for non-supporting browsers though to avoid a mess.

does anyone really use WEFT to any great effect?
