Niiiice, I might have to give myself an early Christmas present.
Is Museo Serif on the way, too (or am I being too greedy)?

Chris! You just wait till your next release! (thx!)

@ mili — No serif for Museo. Maybe a condensed Sans and maybe also a rounded sans.

Maybe a condensed Sans and maybe also a rounded sans
Ooh, either or both of those would be great!

Craig, your votes are noted :)

Thanks, André!

If it counts, my vote is for a condensed! :-)

Excellent! Despite all the differences, it still looks immediately like Museo.

Peace,
JT

Very nice, and priced very generously too.

Jos Buivenga's picture

Thanks, Chris.

Bill, I've updated this post.

Late to the party. This really looks great Jos. A 'happy' slab, which is unusual. It should be competition for Archer, which seems to be everywhere. (I love it as well.)

This was needed I dare say. Solid work Jos :)

Jos Buivenga's picture

Thanks a lot for the kind words, William & Nina!

Archer is too small on the body to be really friendly.

Sounds like time for Tiffany to chime in * ;)

Just put it on my Christmas wish list. I need a bold to go with my free 500 weight!

Jos, indeed: Tiffany, right here* right now girl! ;-)

* I mean Typophile, not this thread!

I'm lovin' it. I'll probably use it a lot, maybe not as much as the sans or Delicious, but it looks like it has a lot of utility. Well done!

Jos Buivenga's picture

Hrant, I guess it was not that visible that my * was linked :P

Thanks, Christopher.

hrant's picture

Oh, sorry.
But: Aha! Remember what I recently opined about the asterisk? :-)

hhp

Jos Buivenga's picture

Well... topsy turvy... t's like things 'r comin' together'ere ;)

thetophus's picture

Speaking of Delicious, I remember a while back I read on your blog that you were playing around with revising/updating it. Still planning to do that?

Jos Buivenga's picture

I do have still plans for that, but I've abandoned any time scheme.

thetophus's picture

Well definitely keep us posted whenever you get around to it :-)

Font spotting on a Christmas day? ;)

hrant's picture

Does that ranking factor out the freebies?
If not, is there a way to tell what proportion was paid?

hhp

Jos Buivenga's picture

Free downloads do not affect the rankings at MyFonts, only sales.

dezcom's picture

MyFonts "Hot New Fonts" #2 reached by Museo Slab to end the year!

Craig,

Jos Buivenga's picture

Thanks, Nina.

Chris, or maybe Esco Gido? ;)

Bendy's picture

Jos, you seem to have an impeccable knack for drawing fonts that people immediately love. Any tips!?

*Edit* Sorry, forgot to mention, Museo Slab is lovely! :)

Jos Buivenga's picture

No tips I'm affraid, Ben. I'm only doing what I like and what I think is interesting to work on. I'm often surprised that so many people appreciate my fonts.

(Thanks! :)

Ah yes, Poor Wolfman Jack had quite a big, crazy voice in the sixties.
