Finally, Pyke's Peak is out. It only costs $30 for a premium decorative display font loaded with OpenType features and a supporting cast of 590 extras. Or you can have the "cut-down" version—Pyke's Peak Zero—for zero cash outlay. On the Myfonts font family page, click on "purchase options", then download Pyke's Peak Zero for $0.
For an idea of what full kit and kanoodle can do, grab all the samples of old Pykie and salivate at the extras sheet.
Q. What's the deal with "zero cost"?
A. With the recent controversy over web font embedding using the CSS @font-face property, the associated problem of unauthorized distribution of fonts only licensed for private use, and the "looming spectre" of the great web "fugly", I decided to do as much as I could to help the situation with a single font release.
PP Zero is licensed for:
* personal (non-profit) and commercial use
* yes you read that right
* unlimited copying & distribution on font archive sites
* "embedding" on webpages using CSS @font-face property
* unlimited distribution on web servers
* no logo fee
PP Zero plays with a full deck.
* ultra-complete Latin 1 & Latin 2 character set
* full outline quality of PP regular (outlines are not degraded in any way)
* OpenType with standard ligatures (LIGA) and fractions (FRAC)
