I know, this as a first post would be asking for trouble but I will gladly take the flak if this would result in a funded kickstarter project. I would be bummed out if this project doesn't get funded because I would like to use the sh*t out of that font. So my selfishness is in a way a shameless selfpromotion.
Anyways, Mark Caneso from p.s. type is looking for backers to expand his Quatro typeface from 3 fonts to a full 16 fonts - 4 weights (with matching italics in each style) type family. In my opinion an interesting solution for financing a typeface.
More info about this project is over here at kickstarter.
It would be awesome if more people could back this up.
