A first its kind, The Lost Type Co-Op is a pay-what-you-want type foundry.

Begun a little over two years ago by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, originally in a whirlwind 24 hour adventure to distribute a single typeface, Lost Type has blossomed into a full fledged foundry, distributing fonts from designers all over the world.

Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font (you can even type in ‘$0′ for a free download). 100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively — Lost Type takes no cut of sales, and holds no funds.
