I’ve leveraged two Google Web Fonts two build this site, Amethysta and Inconsolata. It’s a lot easier than dealing with picking fonts for each platform and hoping and praying. Plus, Amethysta was really beautiful and spoke to me. For the first time in a while I wanted to make a site in a serif face. I may grow tired of it.
In any event, Beautiful Web Type aims to find the swans:
There are currently 404 typefaces in the Google web fonts directory. Many of them are awful. But there are also high-quality typefaces that deserve a closer look. Below are examples of these typefaces in action. Click the examples to get the typeface from the Google web fonts directory.
Definitely worth a look.
