Designer Dan Gneiding has released "Dude," a new "reverse contrast" typeface, inspired by country music legends: "Whiskey drinking, train hopping, fist fighting, hard loving, prison breaking, men and women, who poured their hearts out in song."
The set has twelve different serif styles, each inspired by a country music star such as Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, and Johnny Cash. You can download it for free from Lost Type Co Op if you choose, but I'm definitely going to live into the "pay as you wish" model and compensate Dan for his awesome work. Plus, "as a bonus, anyone who chooses to pay $40 or more will receive a copy of the limited edition Dude specimen book, which features spreads designed by 27 different designers."
