This Crimson Text font family archive offers six different weights and styles as a Garamond inspired roman serif freeware TTF webfont.

This distribution archive includes the Regular Roman and Italic, the Semibold and Semibold Italic, and the Bold and Bold Italic weight/style .ttf font files, the font license text file (OFL.txt) and this distribution archive info note text file (CrimsonText.txt).

This is a free font with commercial use allowed, licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1. See the included aforementioned OFL.txt text file in this distribution archive for license specifics and details.

from the artist:

Crimson Text is a font family for book production in the tradition of beautiful oldstyle typefaces.

There are a lot of great free fonts around, but one kind is missing: those Garamond-inspired types with all the little niceties like oldstyle figures, small caps, fleurons, math characters and the like. In fact, a lot of time is spend developing free knock-offs of ugly "standards" like Times and Helvetica.

Crimson Text is inspired by the fantastic work of people like Jan Tschichold, Robert Slimbach and Jonathan Hoefler. We hope that the free type community will one day be able to enjoy Crimson Text as a beautiful workhorse
