Just tweeted about it. I'll do so again when it launches.
Neat! Hope you didn't promise too much... I might possibly rethink the whole "free font" part. Perhaps I'll just give out the upright cursive for free, and charge $20 or so for the roman and the italic.
I'm also following Stephen Coles' suggestion of calling the stubby fonts Maestrale Text rather than Maestrale Baby. Oh, and he suggested round points for the Roman, which works quite well:

If I knew it was going to be free I'd be less excited. :-)
Alright, alright, it seems I'm the only one who likes the idea of a free teaser font... I guess I'll start out asking money for all of them, and making Cursive free if the sales should go badly. :P
Huh. A week after release, it looks like Maestrale is at the same time my most critically acclaimed and my least selling font. What gives?
I might just have to give the freemium model a try after all.
