Merriweather was designed to be a text face that is pleasant to read on screens. Merriweather is an evolving project and will be updated. As of now there are 4 styles: Regular, Light, Bold, and Black. There are now Italic styles in each of these weights, too.
There is also Merriweather Sans, a sans-serif version which closely harmonizes with the weights and styles of this serif family.
Designed by Eben Sorkin, Merriweather features a very large x height, slightly condensed letterforms, a mild diagonal stress, sturdy serifs and open forms.
Merriweather is a work in progress and will be improved regularly. This means you can request improvements and even fund specific features if if they are outside of the current scope of work. For more information and to stay updated see Eben Sorkin’s blog and Flickr stream, and the MerriweatherFnt Twitter microblog.
