    Gorgeous font with fascinating history behind it. Page is heavily over-designed and takes a full minute to load. Also $1000 for an entire font family is outrageous. Not sure who can to drop a MacBook worth on a single font family.

      The price is not that uncommon. Many font families not on Typekit, Google Fonts or other hosted services are in the $500-$1000 range.

      Take everyone's favorite web font, Proxima Nova—purchasing a perpetual license costs $734.

      Who buys a perpetual license? Mostly business and agencies—for many $1,000 is a small expense. When I worked in advertising, the agency had tons of font licenses.
