Ecofont

A dutch company has developed a font, special for ecofriendly printing: the Ecofont.
The font looks like Emmenthal cheese, or like a lettertype that's been used in a Sergio Leone movie.

"Appealing ideas are often simple: how much of a letter can be removed while maintaining readability? After extensive testing with all kinds of shapes, the best results were achieved using small circles. After lots of late hours (and coffee) this resulted in a font that uses up to 20% less ink. Free to download, free to use."

The Ecofont is distributed under GPL and based upon Bitstream Vera.
