Because I'm semi-obsessed. I'm pretty sure I've stumbled upon it before, but never really took the time to browse or figure out how to use it.
Today, as I was creating some sweet little cookie favor labels for a friend, I decided that I was in desperate need of downloading some swoon-worthy fonts to give the labels a polished look.
After a little Pinterest search, I discovered the font wonderland that is Lost Type Co-op.
How does it work?
"The Lost Type Co-Op is a Pay-What-You-Want Type foundry, the first of its kind.
Founded 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, with its unique model.
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."

SO awesome, right?
I'm smitten with the entire site... even the site's design. Talk about inspiration!
Anyway, if you're ever browsing for some good fonts, be sure to stop by and check out the goods at Lost Type Co-Op.
Once I'm done with the labels, I'll have to share a little sneak peek of what I came up with.
Wishing you an inspired weekend! :)
